A 27-year old woman from Mukarange sector in Kayonza district of Eastern Province has been arrested after stabbing her husband with a machete over property related disputes.

The incident took place in the night of Sunday 2nd January 2022 in Miyange village, Kayonza cell of Mukarange sector.

The executive secretary of Mukarange sector, Longin Gatanazi has told IGIHE that the woman lived separately with her husband for one week and stabbed him as she returned home.

“The spouses have been experiencing strained relationship that the woman had abandoned the husband a week ago. She returned home yesterday and stabbed her husband leaving serious injuries below the ear. Following the incident, residents rushed to take the husband to nearby Mukarange Health Center which also transferred him to Gahini Hospital because he was in critical condition,” he said.

Gatanazi revealed that the spouses were among households mired in disputes that local leaders visited them last week and advised them to live separately.

However, Gatanazi explained, the woman did not respect the advice that she returned home and stabbed the husband with a machete.

He appealed on residents to avoid disputes, self-administered justice and seek assistance from local leaders to avoid similar incidents.

The spouses were not legally married but had sired two children together. The woman has been handed over to Mukarange RIB Post for further legal process.
