Man Beats Wife To Stupor For Killing Chicken Before Christmas
Peter Kadama, a 50-year-old Ugandan man, has reportedly left his wife brutalized, after beating her for killing the family’s Christmas chicken before December 25.
According to Tuko.co.ke, Kadama had used his hard-earned money to buy a chicken, and instructed his wife to reserve it for the occasion.
However, she slaughtered the animal and prepare soup with it before time.
The development was said to have infuriated the man after he learnt that his wife had prepared a pot of soup with the chicken one week before the celebration.
He was reported to have descended on her with blows and kicks, which landed her in the hospital.
“The man kicked and whipped the wife severely leaving her for dead. The woman is currently receiving medical treatment at Budaka Health Centre IV,” a local official, Joseph Gadimba, was quoted as saying over the incident.
Gadimba revealed that the violence has not been reported to the police, because local leaders have asked the man to foot his wife’s hospital bills.
“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,” Gadimba added.
