Most of them are established business women
After the death of Didas Tukundane, 42, a businessman who was gunned down Tuesday night outside his gate in Busega, Kibumbiro Zone B, uncofirmed reports show that his wife Christine Kaitesi, is taken as top suspect.
Neighbours say that following the shooting, Kaitesi called her husband's phone and when he did not pick up, she emerged from the gate to find his limp body slumped across the co-driver's seat, covered in blood.
"She hopped into the car and attempted to drive off but was stopped by bewildered neighbours who asked what she was doing," a witness said.
Kaitesi is reported to have said she was rushing her husband to hospital, but was told she was in no state of mind to drive and so a neighbour rushed Tukundane to hospital in a Double Cabin Pickup.
This is one of the many other stories where women have been accused of killing their husbands.
