Denis Avaga, a 27-year-old Askari guarding Madhvani sugarcane plantations has met his tragic end after discovering his wife Agnes Agidru 32, in a compromising situation with another man, identified as Raphael Onzima 26, a sugarcane cutter working with Kakira Sugar Limited, after he was fatally stabbed on February 20, 2024 in a shocking incident that rocked Mawoito A village in Kakira Town Council, Jinja district.


According to Kiira region police spokesperson, James Mubi, Avaga returned home from work at around 10:00 PM only to hear his wife’s screams emanating from their bedroom. Suspecting foul play, Avaga kicked down the door only to find his wife engaged in an illicit affair with Onzima.


A confrontation ensued between Avaga and Onzima, escalating into a violent altercation.


“Onzima allegedly picked up a knife and stabbed Denis Avaga in the chest, stomach, and arm,” stated SP Mubi.


Despite being rushed to Madhvani Hospital, Avaga succumbed to the injuries due to severe bleeding.


In a bid to escape the wrath of the enraged community, Onzima fled the crime scene naked and sought refuge at Kakira Central Police Station. Agidru also fled, naked, to a sugarcane plantation in Wanyange, where she was later apprehended by the police.


In connection with the crime, Police arrested three other individuals Geoffrey Echoku, a neighbor who allegedly goaded the altercation between Avaga and Onzima, Peter Ocheng the landlord who was implicated as the owner of the knife used in the murder along with his wife Pamela Ocheng who was arrested for allegedly cleaning the crime scene to conceal evidence.


Preliminary investigations revealed that Onzima and Agidru had been publicly displaying affection, frequenting bars in Kakira Town Council as though they were a couple.


The tragic incident has sent shockwaves through the community, prompting authorities to intensify efforts to address underlying social issues and prevent similar occurrences in the future.
