LC Court Whips Father Of 4

By Joel Ogwang

A 30-year-old man in Mukono was on Tuesday caned 20 strokes after he allegedly buttered [sic] his mother over interference with his marital life.

Charles Mukiibi, 30, a resident of Luwuvu village in Nakisunga sub-county, allegedly buttered Christine Namuddu, 57, for intervening while he was beating his wife, Dorcus Nakandi, 26, for starving his four children when she did not cook lunch.

“My mother should have boundaries. If I’m disciplining my wife, let her fight my dad,” an infuriated Mukiibi said, sparking off the villagers’ wrath.

He said he sweats a lot to ensure that his three daughters and son eat, but the wife did not recognise it when she failed to cook.

Mukiibi accused his wife of rumour mongering with women from the neighbourhood. However, Nakandi said Mukiibi did not leave behind any money.

On his arrest, Fred Kasibante, the village chief, ordered that Mukiibi be caned 20 strokes in front of his mother and residents to serve as an example to other man.

He was also fined a jerry can of waragi, a goat and a gomesi for his mother to resolve the wrangle.
