In her statement, the suspect confessed to have stabbed the deceased because of mistaken identity. “I was aiming at stabbing Mutesi’s friend Amiina Babirye who was openly flirting with my husband in broad day light. In early March this year, neighbors tipped me off and I found Babirye sleeping with my husband and this incident sparked off my anger to date,” her statement reads in part.
