TORORO – Police in Tororo are dumbfounded after a 23-year old man sought help claiming a man whose wife he had slept with had caused him an endless erection for eight straight days.
Simon Peter Olara, a guard attached to HARSH Security Company limited and deployed at Tororo cement industry started experiencing an endless painful erection after having sex with Christine Aboth 23, the wife to Jaffar Wambede, a radio and TV technician in Malaba town.
Aboth, who lives at Greenland trading center, has for the last two weeks been seeing Olaro after bitterly separating with Wambede in June this year.
Wambede had accused her of stealing household property and aborting whenever she conceived.
Olara, groaning in pain, told Malaba police on Tuesday that he had started experiencing the abnormal erection on September 8, 2014 soon after having sex.
He said ever since the erection started, the situation had worsened as he could not even sleep at night.
After failing to receive medical attention at St Anthonyâ€™s hospital where doctors advised him to undergo surgery, Olaro was taken to Malaba police by his colleagues, friends and LCI chairperson of Greenland trading center, Maureen Alowo to plead with Wambede to forgive him in case he had a hand in the strange happening.
Aboth told the police that she ran away from Wambedde due to torture leading to miscarriages but promised to return the house hold property she had stolen to save Olara.
She explained that ever since Olaraâ€™s abnormal situation, she has been spending sleepless nights as he cries throughout.
She accused the former husband of having a hand in her new fiancÃ©eâ€™s condition saying when they were separating, Wambedde assured her that she would never have peace with any other man, an allegation he vehemently denies.
Wambedde said he could not do such a thing to an innocent young man because Aboth is no longer his wife and at best, he has a new wife.
Alowo described the situation as strange occurrence and the first of its kind in her village which is located adjacent to Tororo cement limited.
She said they decided to look for Wambedde after they had failed hospitals and spiritual leaders around.
Alowo pleaded with Wambedde to take back his ex-wife if he was still interested so as to save Olaraâ€™s life.
Julius Jingo, the officer in charge of Malaba police station said they had received the complaint and investigations had commenced.
He explained that the allegations by Aboth that Wambedde threatened her on the day of separation could not be taken lightly but instead it would act as a lead to help them establish the truth while he warned the members of the public to desist from witchcraft.
Michael Odongo, the Malaba regional police spokesperson said Wambedeâ€™s situation was very tricky since there was no law criminalizing witchcraft and sorcery.
Odongo said after convincing both parties they agreed to consult a witchdoctor in Busesa Iganga district to save the situation and restore Olaroâ€™s life.
