Matooke 'thief' gets 40 strokes

By Our Reporter

A man who was allegedly nabbed stealing a bunch of matooke from an army officer's banana plantation at Port Bell UPDF Marines detach, April 5, suffered 40 strokes of the cane.

Kyaterekera Kojja (19) was nabbed by one Nalongo Kempeta as he felled the bunch of matooke at around 6.00 a.m.

The plantation belongs to the detach's political commissar (PC), Lawrence Mutemba Ntare.

Eyewitnesses said Kempeta alerted Mutemba who arrived with soldiers. The soldiers chased Kyaterekera across the railway line before he was intercepted with his loot by a patrolling LDU, one Mukasa.

He was taken with his loot hanging from his neck to the army detach where he was given 40 strokes.

He was then rolled in mud, and made to slash the detach's compound.

By Paul Okware In Malaba

LC-I court at Nyalakot village, Osukuru sub-county, Tororo, April 3 fined a man Shs 60,000, a ram and gave him six strokes of the cane for committing adultery.

The court presided over by the LC-I chairperson, Gerald Okapes heard that Paul Wandulu committed the offence, March 27 with Merinnisana Atyang, wife of David Okama in Okama's banana plantation.

Okama told court that he caught the duo red handed after he had returned from a drinking joint at around 8:00 p.m.

He said Atyang had told her children that she was going for a short call but delayed prompting him to spy.

He said since Wandulu was his neighbour, he was able to recognise him.

Atyang admitted that she has committed adultery with Wandulu nine times since their affair started in January.

Wandulu paid the Shs 60,000 fine and a ram instantly, was caned and warned.
