Uganda: Fiancée Injures Lover's Genitals

The Police in Tororo district have arrested a mother and her daughter for allegedly smashing a man's genitals over a love affair that went bad.

Ruth Nabakunga alias Nalongo, a bar operator and Esther Twanza, 19, were picked on Tuesday morning from their home in Bisoni village in Tororo municipality to help the Police in the investigations into the matter.

Nabakunga allegedly attacked Joseph Kasumba who was fighting with Twanza when they returned from a trade fair at 3.00am on Easter Monday.

During the fight, they are suspected to have squeezed and injured Kasumba's testicles before leaving him lying unconscious.

When he staggered home, Kasumba was then rushed by his mother Jeniffer Amoit to Tororo general clinic in critical condition where he was admitted groaning with pain with blood oozing out from his genitals.

John Mugeni the medical officer in charge of the clinic said Kasumba sperm tubes were completely destroyed as a result. He said Kasumba requires a surgical operation adding that he is likely not to be able to produce children in future.

Mugeni said they are still monitoring the situation before referring him to Mbale regional hospital.

Speaking with a lot of difficulty in his hospital bed in private room 2, Kasumba said the incident happened when he decided to escort Twanza home after a group of boys whom he suspected were following to gang rape her trailed her from the trade fair.

He said he suspected the move when Twanza refused to board a boda-boda motorcycle following a slight disagreement with him in the show over her behavior of dancing with other men he suspected were 'wrong' guys.

However, Twanza said she fought back in the process of self defence when Kasumba was seriously beating her. She said her mother only responded when information reached to her that Kasumba was killing her. She confessed that she is the one who squeezed Kasumba's genitals and not the mother.

The officer in charge of family and child protection unit in Tororo central police station Sophie Nambala confirmed the matter saying the suspects will be produced in court when investigations are complete.

However, Amoit who was with tears rolling down her face, said Kasumba had just completed a computer and mechanical engineering course in Mukwaya computer centre in Bwaise near Kampala and he was in the process of beginning a business.

Amoit was worried that her son will not be able to produce in future yet he is a young man without any child.
