The body of a 61-year-old tailor in Kabale town was on Sunday evening found floating on Lake Bunyonyi’s Kakoko shores, in Kitumba sub-county.
The body of Vanansio Zirihoona was found two days after he disappeared following a fight with his wife whom he accused of promiscuity.
The deceased was renowned tailor operating near MTN offices on Kabale Main Street.
Joseph Sunday, a brother of the deceased says on Friday night at around 11 pm, a fight erupted between Zirihoona and his family members including his wife Innocent Tumuheirwe and his eldest son who is also the Mwendo parish youth Councilor identified as Isaac Lucky alias Chicharito.
The family members were fighting over the 10-year-old last born whom the husband believed was fathered by another man.
The previous week, Sunday says the child was taken for DNA test and that Zirihoona returned angrier and protested that doctors did not remove testing samples from him for examining to determine the real father of the child.
Sunday says that during the fight on Friday night, Zirihoona even attempted to burn Tumuheirwe and Lucky from inside the house using kerosene but they overpowered him and put off the fire.
Zirihoona then disappeared until on Sunday evening when his body was found floating on the lake.
However, some of the locals suspected that Zirihoona was killed by the family members and dumped in the lake since part of his trouser torn and his leg wounded.
A police officer at the scene told this reporter that Tumuheirwe and Lucky had been arrested and detained at Kabale Central Police Station to help in investigations.
