A man only identified as Zabayo drowned two of his children in a well before throwing himself in the same well in Kadaali Village, Karambi sub county in Kasese District.
Zabayo’s body was discovered near the well while the two bodies of his children aged 2 years and 4 years were found floating.
According to eye witnesses, Zabayo was last seen fuming over his wife Enid Kyalimpa who walked into another marriage, leaving him and is their two children.
Residents report that Zabayo went to fetch the kids from his Father in-law, Moses Byamukama who handed them over without suspecting Zabayo would end their lives.
“He (Zabayo) came for the children at my home like he always does. He comes for them and brings them back later. So when I didn’t find them home, I asked my wife who confirmed Zabayo had gone with them. I did not know he wanted to kill them,” Byamukama said.
