On Sunday evening, concerned citizens from Bigyegye village were shocked to see Kwesiga’s house on fire and rushed to the scene. It was later discovered that Kwesifa wanted to kill his wife by burning her inside the house.
Kwesiga was immediately arrested by angry neighbors who tied him and interogated him. He accepted that he wanted to finish off the wife for excessive punishment of denying him sex and food. The wife also admitted that the husband became a ‘useless’ and forgot all his family obligations which extremely angered her.
