Tooro Princess, Ruth Komuntale’s former husband was on Friday arrested in Kampala.
Police detectives picked the American, Christopher Duke Thomas, from Kabowa, a Kampala suburb.
By the time we got the report, Christopher was being held at Katwe Police Station.
As we gathered, he was reported to police by his current girlfriend, a one Gloria M Banza of Congolese origin, who accused Christopher of beating her badly.
At the couple’s Kabowa home, police gathered broken glasses and Banza’s torn clothes as part of the evidence.
According to OC CIID Katwe Police Station, Benon Ayebale, Christopher was charged with malicious damage to property and assault.
The case is recorded under file No. SD39/17/4/2015.
“We will also charge him for domestic violence,” Ayebale pointed out saying it was not the first time Christopher was involved in criminal acts.
Banza, a business lady and student at the same time, told police that Christopher came home drunk and started demanding for sex.
“I was late for work. I told him to wait until I come back but he couldn’t,” she said.
Banza narrated that after refusing to give Christopher “some”, he became angry and started insulting her.
“He called me a prostitute and accused me of sleeping with other men behind his back,” she told police.
She also shot back in self-defence but the man started beating her up.
Banza told police that she was afraid, Christopher would kill her some day.
“He has been beating me. My body is all bruised from his severe beatings,” she cried.
Chris Komuntale separation
Wed on November 17, 2012, Chris and Komuntale’s marriage failed over infidelity and domestic violence back in 2013.
After the bitter separation, Chris started accusing the Princess of denying him conjugal rights since their wedding.
Komuntale on the other hand accused Chris of promiscuity and physical and emotional abuse.
