Uganda police have released a comprehensive report on domestic-related issues during the lockdown to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Records at the Kampala Metropolitan Police Headquarters show that 10 people have died while 402 others sustained both major and minor injuries as a result of domestic brawls within the lockdown period.

Police say that 10 people were killed by their partners between March 18 and July 31 in the Kampala metropolitan area.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango these incidents were instigated by financial constraints in homes that led to drunkenness, and extra-marital suspicions.

“We so far have 402 cases of domestic violence. The unfortunate part of it is we also registered deaths resulting from domestic violence. This is where a man killed a wife or a wife killed a husband,” Onyango said.

Among those killed in domestic fights include the ongoing investigation involving Viola Kakai, 32, a midwife at International Hospital Kampala-IHK who was allegedly killed by her husband Simon Samanya.

Kassim Tumwine, who was allegedly stabbed by his girlfriend Janat Nakibuuka following a disagreement.

Sarah Mayiga, who was strangled by her boyfriend identified as Isaac Mukisa from Maala fishing camp in Koome, Mukono district, and Prossy Namaganda, who was killed by her husband, Abdallah Matovu.

Patience Gumikiriza of Nalumunye, Wakiso district, and Maria Nanozi, a minor who was killed in a fight by her parents, in Wakiso town among others.

Onyango says police have joined in the fight against domestic violence with the involvement of Community Liaison Officers-CLOs in both communities and on the radio with sensitization drives.

Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
