A commercial sex worker operating in Kampala has been arrested for allegedly stabbing her lover to death over meat.
Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango identified the suspect as Norah while the deceased is Bob Matovu, a resident of Kayanja zone in Rubaga Division in Kampala.
Matovu met his death in the wee hours of Thursday morning when he was stabbed several times by Norah for allegedly feasting on meat he hadn't bought. According to Onyango, residents claim that the suspect picked up a knife and stabbed Matovu in the chest, neck and back blaming him for eating her meat.
The couple was renting at the home of Ibrahim Nsubuga whose rentals also double as lodges. Nsubuga and other neighbours tried to save Matovu’s life by rushing him to Rubaga hospital where he was pronounced dead hours later.
Nsubuga has since told Old Kampala police that he didn’t know much about the couple, which has been occupying his guest houses at less than Shs 5000 daily.
In her statement, Norah claims that she doesn’t know where Matovu comes from, saying she only met him while doing her business of commercial sex and they started living together. The duo had been living as husband and wife for less than three months.
Hassan Bukenya, the guard to Kabaka’s Lake, said the deceased was little known in the area. Police and residents have since started searching for Matovu’s relatives.
