50-year old man has severely beaten his wife for slaughtering chicken which was meant for Christmas in Kabuna Central, Uganda.
The man Peter Kaduna is reported to have bought the chicken at Shs15, 000 with the aim of slaughtering and having it as a meal on Christmas day, but unfortunately his wife Christine Kayendeke slaughtered and prepared it on Sunday December 15.
According to the area LC1 Secretary for information, Joseph Gadimba, on learning that the chicken was no more, Kadama pounced on his wife accusing her of slaughtering the chicken without his permission.
“The man kicked and whipped the wife severely leaving her for dead. The woman is currently receiving medical treatment at Budaka Health Centre IV,” Mr Gadimba said.
He also said LC1 leaders ordered the man to take fully responsibility of treating his wife which he accepted, and the case was never reported to police.
“Once the woman recovers, her relatives from Kapyani-Kasasira in Kibuku District are expected to hold a meeting with their in-law to establish the cause of the assault to their daughter and resolve the matter,” he said.
