Two men have died fighting for a woman in Kayunga, Kyampisi sub-county in Mukono district. The deceased have been identified as Hassan Kiwango 45, a timber dealer and Hakim Katende 48, a driver, both residents of Kiyunga who were living just about 100 metres apart. 

Katende has for the past one year accused Kiwango of having an affair with his wife, Dorothy Birungi, which caused a wide rift between their two families. Kiwango has been staying with two children aged 12 and 4 years, in the absence of his wife who went to Saudi Arabia for externalised employment.

According to Kiyunga LC I chairperson Douglas Ssekalegga, the dispute between the two men reached the local council committee for mediation and it appeared as if they had resolved the matter. But open quarrels resumed this month - compelling the LC I committee to forward the matter today to Kiyunga mosque to be resolved by the Imam.

However, to everyone's shock, Katende attacked Kiwango this morning before the Imam's meeting could take place and hacked him to death. He allegedly cut him on the neck, hands and at the back several times.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango says detectives from Naggalama police station visited the scene and found the body lying upside down in front of his house with multiple deep cuts on the entire body. 

It appears that Kiwango had also fought back and inflicted grave injuries on Katende. Onyango explains that after systematic examination of the scene of the crime, blood droplets were spotted and a blood trail led police to Kigagga zone where Katende's body was found with multiple cuts.

“The two bodies have been taken to Kayunga hospital for postmortem as children and the wife to Katende are held at police for their safety,” Onyango says.

Onyango adds that police have also been deployed at both Katende and Kiwango's homes to prevent the public from damaging their properties.
 
Sophia Kigundu, a sister of Kiwango, appeals to police to speed up their investigations to find out whoever supported Katende to kill her brother.

Really, people don't really know where to spend their their energy.

Ugandans need to learn to let go sometimes. Fighting for a man or woman is sooo yesterday's

Hmm....my dear you are saying this because it is not your spouse being eaten by a neighbour especially after the meeting.

It is possible that the encroacher continued to eat things or provoked the 'owner'. It is also possible that the woman kept tormenting the 'owner' with those poking words like...that's why so and so almost took me...There must have been good reason to attack the man.

It is also possible that they kept quarreling on phone and decided to meet man to man hence the fatal infliction of wounds on both sides

The husband of the wife Mr. Katende could have been killed by another person or people because the cutting the cutting of the lover of his wife couldn't give him time to revenge as it was a rapid attacks.

People are only faking stories as a cover up.

The owner? What is that? Who owns what in this situation? Seems like you are still stuck with the ancient belief that men owns women.

From this situation you can see that the woman does not want to be owned and it led to the stupid men killing themselves. Move with the time people. You can't want to live in iron roofed house but have the thinking of 1800

I couldn't agree more. If my pouse cheats on me; it is over without a quarrel or fight.

It will be painful, extremely painful, initially but with time you get over it.

Love triangles are so common these days, instead of attacking each other, they should have finished off the woman, it is so stupid of them going after each other as if the other man just raped her, i guess she consented to everything

There is a time to let go. Otherwise you may end up getting everybody killed.

Somebody who loves you gives you no reason to fight with anybody else. It is that simple, yet missed in many instances. This is one such instance.

Two unthinking men are dead, and soon to be forgotten. May the still living find meaning in this mutual destruction. Amen!

In other words, the love for women is the source of all evils.
