Man hacks woman for denying him money for gambling
Authorities in Rubaga Division in Kampala are hunting for a man accused of severely cutting his wife’s left hand with a machete for reportedly refusing to give him money for gambling.
The 47-year-old man from Musigula Zone in Rubaga Division nearly chopped off the hand of his wife Fiona Nyakato, 28, on January 5.
According to police, the suspect became angry after losing all the money he had on him to friends in a gambling game at the pub.
The accused person, who was reportedly drunk, later ordered his wife to surrender Shs100,000 which the family had received as rent payment for one of their rooms .
However, upon refusing to surrender the money, reasoning that it was all the family had been left with, a fight erupted between the couple with the suspect running for a panga which he used to harm his wife.
