109-Year-Old Woman Fatally Stabbed by 110-Year-Old Husband Over Conjugal Rights In Ntungamo
NTUNGAMO –A 110-year-old man has reportedly murdered his 109-year-old wife for allegedly denying him sex.
The deceased is Constansio Bakasisa while the suspect is Dominic Babiiha.
Babiiha was also found unconscious in his bedroom allegedly after attempting suicide by taking a pesticide. According to statements made by their great grandchildren at Police, Babiiha stabbed his wife using a curved machete locally known as “oruhabyo” while at their home in Kahunga Parish of Ntungamo District on Thursday evening at around 8 pm after asking Bakasisa to join him in bed after supper. However, she declined due to the fact that she was feeling weak and having a cough.
The Rwizi Regional Police spokesperson, SP Samson Kasasira told our reporter today morning that the suspect was admitted at Itojo Hospital for treatment, with investigations underway.
Kasasira condemned the act and urged the public to resort to non-violent means to resolve misunderstandings or seek help from relevant authorities.
