IGANGA. Mr Abdalla Ibinga, a farmer based in Buyende, has learnt the hard way that “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. One of his two wives, cut off his penis with a razor blade to punish him for taking on a second woman.
The 30-year-old woman who is being sought by police in Buyende, is said to have attacked her husband last Friday night at their marital home in Irundu village in Kagulu Sub-county in Buyende District.
Mr Ibinga who was admitted to Iganga hospital on Saturday night, told the media from his hospital bed that Ms Namuwaya had prepared and served him with a special meal before the couple retired for the night.
“We slept together without any quarrel but at about midnight, I thought I had got a nightmare and woke up only to find myself lying in a pool of blood with my genitals heavily severed and my wife nowhere in sight,” he narrated.
He said the relationship between him and the suspect has been shaky since he took on a second wife last year. Mr Ibinga alleges that during their endless quarrels, the suspect promised to teach him and her co-wife a lesson, but he had not taken her seriously.
Mr Ali Lubaale, the victim’s father, said the family had been aware of the threats, but they had been taken lightly.
A medical officer at the hospital, Mr Constant Ochwo, said Mr Ibinga needs to see a specialist.
“He sustained deep cut wounds at the penile region and at the moment we have temporarily passed a catheter which he is using to pass urine, but he needs to see a specialist. We have referred him to Mulago,” he said.
