The eyewitnesses Elizabeth Ninsiima and Nazari Marry Patrie said that Katusiime had visited their trading Center taking a glass of waragi in the neighbours’ bar while abusing the victim’s mother Mercy Asiimwe to have brought a bastard child in their family.
This annoyed Mercy to the extent that she attacked Katusime who was doing some house chores at her home.
They added that Katusime went wild after they had stopped her from fighting with Mercy which prompted her to pretend as if everything had gone back to normal before she picked a forked hoe in her Mother’s house and hit the victim on the forehead.
