A renowned city businessman identified as Henry Katanga has been shot dead following an alleged heated quarrel with his wife Molly Katanga at their residence in Mbuya, an upscale Kampala suburb on Thursday morning.

Police in Bugolobi revealed last evening they responded to a call about a shooting at a residence at Mbuya Hill in Nakawa Division.

The OC station of Bugolobi ASP Peter Ogwang and his team upon arriving at the scene, said they found Katanga “soaked in a pool of blood in his master bedroom with a wound on the head resulting from a gunshot.

One Tricia, a daughter of the deceased told police detectives at the scene that her father had developed a misunderstanding with her mother, Molly Katanga.

She said that shortly afterward, she heard a gunshot in the bedroom, and upon rushing there, she found her father leaning on the bed with blood coming out of his head and her mother lying on the ground seemingly unconscious.

Molly Katanga was rushed to IHK for treatment by the family members before the arrival of the Police.

Information which this website couldn’t independently verify indicates that Mr Katanga and his wife were involved in a domestic fight that took a deadly turn.

The dispute escalated to a point where a firearm was allegedly used.

What remains unknown is whether Mrs Katanga knows how to use gun (pistol) by discharging a bullet which ended her husband’s life.

No government official or relative of the deceased was willing to speak about the matter considering the family is prominent and well known to high-ranking government officials.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga did not pick our repeated calls.

What this website has established is, senior government officials both in security and administration have pitched camp at Katanga’s residence in a bid to establish the truth.

“Molly remains in shock and she is not well. She has not spoken to anyone,” says a source.

The source added that there have been over 20 versions of the incident and it remains unclear what exactly could have happened that resulted into the businessman’s death.

Both the husband and wife run a procurement and supplies firm.

Police is actively investigating and is yet to issue a report detailing the cause of death and who caused it.

A source said relatives particularly on Molly’s side have rejected the allegations that she is behind the shooting maintaining that she has no knowledge of gun use.

The Family over the weekend held a massive function for their daughter’s giveaway.

This is a developing story. This website will dig deep to establish what exactly happened.

According to the Police report, a pistol number UG 16222 00061 CZ99 COMPACT was recovered at the scene.

Some family members who were at the home at the time of the incident were arrested and taken in for questioning.

Investigations into the matter are still ongoing.
