Police in Uganda are holding a teacher for allegedly stabbing her husband to death after he denied her conjugal rights.

Harriet Nambi, 24, a resident of Nakiyanja Village in Kaliro Town Council, allegedly stabbed Musa Batera, 25, for refusing to sleep with her ever since she delivered a baby boy by caesarean section about two months ago.

Until his death, Batera, a husband of three wives, was the chairman of Kaliro District Boda Boda Association since 2011, while Nambi is a primary school teacher in Kaliro Town.

Hasifa Babirye, a neighbour, said the couple developed a misunderstanding three days ago following accusations by Nambi that Batera had repeatedly refused to sleep with her.

SEX OR DEATH

“She told me that her husband was denying her sex yet she needed it. I asked her to wait since she had just been operated upon but she was obsessed,” Babirye told police.
