“He thought he had killed me. Actually, I was too weak and I could not scream. That’s when he also cut himself in his neck.”
She continued: “I was preparing to set off to America this very week. Unfortunately, my husband wanted to kill me claiming that he wanted me to (stay) at home without upgrading (my skills).”
Mukono Police District commander, Rogers Seguya confirmed the incident revealing that if Kisakye recovers, he would be charged with attempted murder.
