A Muslim cleric in Uganda got a shock of his life when he discovered that the person he married was not a woman but a man.
According to the report which was made available by the Daily Monitor, the police in Kayunga revealed that Imam Mohammed Mutumba was fooled into exchanging marriage vows with a person of the same gender.
Mutunba was said to have married the 27-year-old wife, Nabukeera, whose real name was later discovered to be Richard Tumushabe, for two weeks before his secrete was leaked.
Mutumba did not make love to his dear Nabukeera for two weeks after their wedding, because she told him she was on her menstrual period.
Mutumba was said to have waited patiently for Nabukeera to get past her menstrual circle so he can they can make love to her.
However, it was all shock to Mutumba as he was contacted by his next-door neighbour who told him that he had seen Nabukeera jump over a fence separating their houses and stole the neighbour’s TV set and clothes.
The neighbour whose name was not mentioned reported the case at Kayunga Police Station before detectives were dispatched to arrest Nabukeera.
Nabukeera who was adorned with hijab and sandals was arrested by Kayunga District criminal investigations officer, Isaac Mugera.
“As the police’s normal practice, a female police officer, searched the suspect thoroughly before taking ‘her’ to the cells. However, to the shock of the officer, the suspect had stacked clothes in the bra to hoodwink that they were Bosom s,” said Mugera. “On further search, we discovered that the suspect had male genitals. We quickly informed ‘her’ husband who had escorted her to the police station.”
To clear all doubt, Mutumba demands that he see his wife’s genital at the police custody.
“On discovering that Nabukeera was a fellow man, Mutumba made an alarm accusing Nabukeera of being a thief,” said Mugera.
