Police in Wamala Region have launched a manhunt for a jilted a woman accused of stabbing her co-wife to death. The suspect is Afia Wimana, a resident of Kisoro district. 

She is wanted in connection to the death of her co-wife, Flavia Mbarushimana, a resident of Ntunda Village in Kibalinga Sub County in Mubende District on Easter Monday.  

 

Preliminary police investigations indicate that Wimana separated with her husband George Niyonzima about eight months ago following a misunderstanding. 

Niyonzima relocated to Mubende district where he married Mbarushimana in pursuit of new life. 

In his statement to police, Niyonzima explains that he started receiving death threats from the suspect but didn’t take them seriously.   

“But yesterday (Easter Monday) I received information that she had traveled to Mubende. I feared since i know her temper and went on to report to the village chairperson,” Niyonzima said.

He explained that upon his return at home, he found his wife lying on the floor in a pool of blood with stab wounds.     

Norbert Ochom, the Wamala Region Police Spokesperson says when they received information about the attack, they rushed to the scene and rushed the victim to Mubende Regional Referral Hospital where she succumbed to the wounds.

“Our officers have visited the crime scene and a number of statements have been recorded but the suspect is still at large. We hope to team up with police in several areas where we suspect that she might have gone after the murder to apprehend her to face the law,” says Ochom.
