In the quiet neighbourhood of Market Triangle Zone in Nyendo Mukugwe Division of Masaka City, tragedy struck in the early hours of Tuesday morning as residents woke up to the grim news of a fatal stabbing.

The victim, identified as Nnalongo Florence Namugerwa, 40, was allegedly stabbed to death by Sadick Wasswa, a fellow resident who is now on the run.

The harrowing incident unfolded amidst a chaotic altercation, leaving residents shocked and grieving.

Maria, the daughter of the deceased, said she was jolted awake by a distressing phone call at around 4am, informing her of her mother's stabbing.

Frantically, she rushed her to Masaka Regional Referral Hospital, only to find herself confronted with the grim reality of her mother's untimely demise.

Residents recounted a series of events leading up to the fatal encounter.

Allegations swirled, pointing fingers at Wasswa, who had been known to the community as "Team Muhoozi."

Residents claimed that Wasswa had caused disturbances by knocking on doors in the early hours telling them to come out and rescue Namugerwa whom he said was too drunk.

“Wasswa called us to come out and help Nnalongo to lock her door because she is a drunkard and she cannot close it by herself, then after Wasswa ran away. But the moment we came, we found Nnalongo’s body in a pool of blood,” residents said.

The grief-stricken community lamented the loss of Nnalongo Namugerwa, emphasising that she was not embroiled in any trouble prior to the incident.
