Ugandan Imam Discovers He Married a Man Weeks After Their Wedding
Ugandan Imam has been suspended from clerical work after discovered he unknowingly married a fellow man in Islamic culture (Nikah).
According to the article of Vanguard, Sheikh Mohammed Mutumba, the Imam of Kyampisi Masjid Noor mosque in Kayunga District Uganda, has been suspended from his clerical work after unknowingly he married a fellow man in Islamic culture (Nikah).
Mutumba tied the knot with his ‘wife’ Ms. Swabullah Nabukeera two weeks ago after they met in the same mosque. However, the couple who had not had any sexual intercourse before marriage also spent two weeks of their marriage without a usual honeymoon.
Without enjoying conjugal rights as the “bride” claimed she was in her menstruation periods. Mr. Mutumba said after his wife claimed to be in her menses, he became patient and waited for her to get better.
However, Nabukeera’s luck ran out after Mr. Mutumba’s neighbor said that his newly wedded wife had jumped over a wall and stole their television set and clothes. The neighbor reported the case at Kayunga Police Station before detectives were dispatched to arrest Ms. Nabukeera.
“It was when he was been searched by a female officer that the suspect had stacked clothes in the bra to hoodwink that they were breasts. On further search, we discovered that the suspect had male genitals,” said Mugera.
During interrogations, Nabukeera revealed that his real name is Richard Tumushabe and that he duped Mutumba so as to get his money. He was charged with impersonation, theft and obtaining goods by false pretense.
Nuuru Nabukeera, Tumushabe’s alleged aunt, was also arrested and admitted that Mutumba had paid dowry including two goats, two bags of sugar, a carton of salt and a Koran. She claimed that she did not know her ‘niece’ was male as she got to know him when he was already an adult.
