A jilted 27-year-old Ugandan husband bathed his wife with acid, causing her severe injuries that eventually led to her death. According to Kampala Sun, on the night of January 7, 2016, a domestic quarrel descended into horror when Imran Kaliisa 27, doused his beautiful wife of eight years, Justine Aisha Kyomugisha, with acid. The second hand shoe trader died of her injuries at Mulago hospital last month, leaving a seven-year old daughter. She was laid to rest in Kisoro.
Following that fateful night, Kaliisa went on the run and has been on police’s most wanted list. Kaliisa, who was arrested from areas of Bunyoro after four months on the run, and he has confessed to the heinous act. Kaliisa told the Police at Katwe that he always grilled his wife about the numerous phone calls she received at awkward hours of the night, strongly suspecting they were from lovers.
She always told him they were only business colleagues. Bothered by the trend, Kaliisa started rummaging threw her belongings to find ‘evidence’ of infidelity. It was during one of such ‘fishing expeditions’ that he saw an HIV status card showing she was positive. All hell broke loose.
Kaliisa says when he confronted his wife, she denied having knowledge of what he was alleging. Out of anger he resolved to punish her in a manner she would never forget, and set about his evil plan that he executed on the fateful night.
