She added, “The condition of the body strongly suggested that the murder occurred roughly two weeks prior and that the body had been left within the house.”
Kawala revealed that the preliminary findings indicated a potential connection between the victim’s tragic murder and domestic violence, with suspicion falling on her husband, Muwonge Joseph Kisenyi.
