A man has been given the shock of his life after finding out the woman he married is a man.
The Imam made the discovery after marrying the bride
Sheikh Mohammed Mutumba, the Imam of Kyampisi Masigid Noor mosque in Kayunga Sub-County, Kayunga District, a fortnight ago, exchanged marriage vows in Islamic culture (Nikah) with his ‘wife’ Ms Swabullah Nabukeera.
According to Daily Monitor, the couple who did not have sexual intercourse before marriage also spent two weeks of their marriage, without enjoying conjugal rights as the “bride” claimed she was menstruating.
Sheikh Mutumba said after his wife claimed to menstruating, he became patient and waited for her to get better.
Nabukeera’s luck ran out after Mutumba’s neighbour claimed 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.
Kayunga District criminal investigations officer, Mr Isaac Mugera said when Ms Nabukeera reached the police station she was wearing a hijab and sandals.
“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 breasts,” Mr Mugera said.
“On further search, we discovered that the suspect had male genitals. We quickly informed ‘her’ husband who had escorted her to the police station,” he said.
The news shocked Sheikh Mutumba who asked the police to let him prove for himself by allowing him to see the private parts of his ‘wife’.
On discovering that he was a fellow man, Mutumba made an alarm accusing Nabukeera of being a thief.
Mr Mugera said they later interrogated Ms Nabukeera, who revealed his real name as Richard Tumushabe, 27.
Mr Mugera added that Tumushabe told police that hehad pretended to be a woman in order to get Mutumba’s money.
