The Police at Mukono have in custody a mother identified as Nankya Esther 29 for allegedly murdering her two children; Kamoga Shaban 6 and Lubega Ramathan 3 years.
According to the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, the incident happened on Wednesday 21.09.2022.
‘’At about 9:00 pm on Wednesday, Nankya’s husband identified as Kamya Musa also father to the two children arrived home and there was no one to open the gate for him. Kamya decided to call his wife on phone but she claimed not to be feeling well, prompting him to open the gate himself’’, said Owoyesigyire.
However, upon entering the house, he found their two children’s bodies lying in a pool of blood in their living room.

The motive for the murder is still unknown, but the suspect will be taken through due process before the file is forwarded to the office of the Resident State Attorney for advice and probable sanctioning.
