Police in Lubowa have recovered the body of a Kenyan National who was killed in a suspected domestic brawl with her boyfriend who is currently on the run.
Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson, identified the deceased as Lydia Wanyuki, a maid in Munyonyo who was killed by Patrice Ochen in one of estates in Lubowa, in Makindye-Ssabagabo, in Wakiso District.
Preliminary investigations have indicated that Wanyuki spent the New Year celebrations at her boyfriend’s place in Lubowa. However, in the early hours of Tuesday, the couple developed a misunderstanding resulting in a fight that claimed her life.
Police detectives from the homicide office who visited the scene said the killer used bricks to hit her on the head several times until she breathed her last.
Owoyesigyire said Police are currently hunting for Ochen as further investigations into the matter continue.
