The Ugandan community is grappling with the news of the demise of Arnold Senkungu, a well-known barber in Kampala. The unfortunate incident unfolded on Wednesday in Kabalagala, where Senkungu lost his life after a violent altercation with his long-time girlfriend and baby mama, Shina Atwine.

The altercation reportedly escalated to a point where Atwine, in a fit of rage, stabbed Senkungu with a knife.

Police, in response to the incident, has presented a knife believed to have been used by Atwine in the commission of the crime as evidence from the crime scene.
At the time of the incident, Shina Atwine was 21 years old and a student, while Senkungu was 24. The couple, who were cohabiting, has left behind a 5-month-old baby, adding a layer of heartbreak to the already tragic circumstances.

Details surrounding the incident emerged after concerned neighbors, upon discovering fresh blood and locked doors, forced entry into the residence. Senkungu was found alive but succumbed to his injuries at Kibuli Hospital. Atwine, tragically, was discovered lifeless with a deep neck wound.
