Police in Kira Municipality a posh Kampala suburb has started for a serious hunt for a businessman who murdered his girl friend after finding strange and love whatsapp messages in her phone from men whom he suspected were bonking her behind his back.
According to police, the deceased has been identified as Gabeya Noah, 22 a resident of Kyaliwajala B Kira Municipality and the killer who is on the run was Kabazi Gerald Alias Sentongo Reagan alias Sekyanzi Businessman and resident of the same area.
Luke Owoyesigyire the police Spokesperson for Kampala Metropolitan area says the murder incident that is under investigations occurred on Sunday 4 at Gabby and Ridden boutique based in Kyaliwajjara that is near their residence.
“After receiving information that a man has murdered his girl Friend at the boutique, we responded very first with the hope of saving her life but unfortunately we found when she was already dead,” says Police Spokesperson adding that the body was taken to Mulago City Mortuary for more investigations.
He says some eyewitnesses who were at the scene of crime recorded their statements, which will help police in the course of investigations. “The killer is still on the run but we hope to get him because we have got some clues now. He will face charges of murder upon his arrest,” adds Luke.
However, some of the close pals to Kabazi told us that the origin of the murder started when a man found some strange and love whatsapp messages in her phone. “The love messages were from men whom the husband suspected were having out side sex with her,” says one of their friends.
He added that when the husband tasked the girlfriend to explain the source of the messages, she refused claiming he has no right over her phone. “Please that phone is mine and whatever message in it belongs to me. You have no right to ask me to explain the source of the message. I have never asked you such questions,” an eyewitness quoted Gabeya fuming to her boyfriend.
The eyewitness says the man lost his tempers grabbed the wife, hit her on the wall of the boutique and picked an iron bar and hit her in the head and died instantly. “After realizing that she was dead, he closed the boutique and ran away,” says another eyewitness.
Other Close pals to the deceased told us that the pair has been having marital issues where the husband has been accusing his wife of cheating but the wife denied allegations claiming that the husband was just jealous.
“The husband had promised to kill her if he gets her with another man or if he lands on any information leaking her to other men and I think it could be the reason why he killed her,” another friend to the pair says.
