Woman Burns Boyfriend, Cousin To Death

The Police in Kampala, Uganda, have arrested a 24-year-old woman, Suzan Kaitesi, accused of locking up her boyfriend and her cousin in her apartment bedroom before setting it ablaze.

The cousin, Patricia Arinda and the boyfriend identified simply as Kajumba, died in what the police are describing as a love triangle.

The suspect is said to have run away from the inferno while telling anyone within the vicinity that a gas explosion had taken place.

The neighbours and police rescue team, however, found the bedroom locked. When they broke into the bedchamber, they discovered two corpses. The gas cooker was intact and bedroom keys missing.

The incident happened on January 12, 2023, at Jinja Karoli Kawempe Zone ‘A’ Ward in Nabweru Kawempe Division Kampala District.

Mr Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan police deputy spokesperson, on Sunday, January 15, 2023, confirmed the incident.

He also revealed that a female suspect has since been arrested and police preferred a holding charge of murder as investigations continue.

Police preliminary investigations indicate that fire shattered the apartment belonging to Ms Grace Sanyu, a businesswoman and resident of Kawempe Division.

“The room, a double unit, was being rented and occupied by Suzan Kaitesi (the suspect) 24 years,” Mr Owoyesigyire said.

“It is reported that Kaitesi received two visitors identified as Patricia Arinda, 24, her cousin, and Kajumba, 27, her friend, she told the police that the visitors came to her place in the morning and the fire broke out later that evening while they were still in the house.”
