A contestant for Ruhaama Constituency member of parliament seat in the February 2011 elections is dead.
Hannington Musasizi Kanyate is said to have been killed by his wife.
Musasizi, who challenged First Lady Janet Museveni for the Ruhaama seat in the heated 2011 elections, succumbed to wounds sustained in a knife attack by his wife Joan Najjuma on Thursday.
His woes started when he reportedly forgot to pick the pregnant Najjuma from her workplace.
After failing to reach her husband on phone, Najjuma at around 11:00pm on the fateful day decided to hire a cab to drop her at their marital home in Lugoba, Kawempe, Kampala.
On reaching home, she was reportedly shocked to find Musasizi having sex with his maid identified as Annet Turyamushaba.
Reacting to the incident, Najjuma, a mother of two, rushed to the kitchen where she picked a knife before stabbing Musasizi in the heart.
Realising that Musasizi was bleeding profusely, Najjuma called a cab driver who quietly dropped him at Mulago Referral Hospital in critical condition.
Kawempe police boss, Joan Namawuba rushed to the crime scene where she recovered a basin full of blood and a blood-soaked shirt.
Upon interrogation, Najjuma reportedly told police that Musasizi had been attacked by thugs and that he was admitted at Mulago Hospital.
Police decided to put into custody Najjuma and Turyamushaba on suspicion of attempted murder.
Musasizi, who was in intensive care at Mulago, was pronounced dead on last evening.
