Kassanda, (UG): The Police in Wamala Region and Kassada District are puzzled by the sudden death of a 31-year-old man who was found hanging dead in a suspected suicide act linked to an earlier domestic brawl he had with his wife.
Wamala Region Police Spokesperson, Ms Rachael Kawala confirmed the incident and identified the deceased as Kalyesubula Frank, a resident of Myanzi village in Myanzi Sub County, Kassanda District.
Preliminary findings indicate that Kalyesubula had earlier engaged in a domestic brawl with his wife on Wednesday before he reportedly locked up the house and walked away to an unknown place.
However, neighbours say on Thursday, Kalyesubula’s wife identified as Rashidah Namatovu who had earlier reported the matter regarding their misunderstanding to the area’s Local Council and the police went back to police when she saw her husband enter the house that he had earlier locked and abandoned on Wednesday.
It is alleged that Kalyesubula on his return to the house collected some of the household property that he set on fire before he used a bed net to hang himself inside the house.
By the time the neighbours broke into the house when they saw smoke, it was too late to save him.
According to Ms Kawala’s statement, the deceased locked himself inside the house and set ablaze the house properties before hanging himself inside the house.
By press time on Friday, Kalyesubula’s body had been transported to Kassanda Health Centre IV in Kassanda District for postmortem as investigations into the suicide case take charge.
