Man whose genitals were cut off by wife says ‘it appeared like any other accident’

The victim Moses Kawubanya (L) being helped at Kamuli Hospital after his wife Susan Namuganza (R) cut off his genitals and robbed him an uspecified amount of money.

Kamuli, (UG):- Moses Kawubanya, a man whose genitals were Monday cut off by his jilted wife in Kamuli District’s Busana Zone village in Nabirumba Ward has described the episode as “any other accident” as he continues recovery from the grievous incident.

Kawubanya, a 45-year-old teacher at Kayembe Primary School was on Monday left in scathing pain after his wife, Susan Namuganza, 35, grabbed a knife, cut off his genitals and robbed him of an unspecified amount of money before fleeing off to an unspecified location.

On that fateful day, Mr Kawubanya, who is also the director of Serena Children’s Home, Nursery and Primary School, says he woke up at around 3 am to bathe, but when he returned to bed, their four-month-old baby started crying and his wife got up.

“She went to the sitting room from where I thought she was going to warm the baby’s milk but before I knew it, she grabbed me and cut off my genitals before fleeing with money,” said Kawubanya from his hospital bed at Kamuli General Hospital.

He added; “My neighbours rushed me here for medical attention and my manhood is now no more.”

When we visited Kawubanya at the hospital on Tuesday after undergoing surgery, he said the operation was successful and he’s now focused on healing fully although he still recounts losing his manhood.

“It is now time to heal physically, emotionally, spiritually, and take the latest episode like any accident where one loses a leg or hand,” the teacher who is also a Senior Pastor in the area told this publication, adding that he now has to take full responsibility and give hope to his children, especially the four-month-old baby who was abandoned by his fugitive wife.

The baby, this publication understands, is now under the care of a paternal aunt and has since become the only good news he wants to hear and feel better.

Kawubanya further appreciated the Kamuli District Education Office which assured him of sick leave with full pay until he recovers as part of his healing process.

“I look forward to the day I get back to my class, but appreciate the District Local Government who have kept on checking and giving me assurance of the safety of my job,” he said.

He also commended the hospital staff for saving his life and taking extra interest in providing an enabling healing environment that changed his mind to self-acceptance.

Busoga North Police Spokesperson, Michael Kasadha, however, said a police manhunt for Ms Namuganza is underway for her to answer charges of attempted murder and robbery of cash.

Ms Namuganza has been a bursar and co-director of the school where parents accuse her of being “rude and arrogant” towards them.

Mr Isaac Elvis Daaki an official from Mama Africa, an NGO based in Buyende and Kamuli Districts, said if it was the man who had battered or cut off the woman’s breast, women rights activists would be everywhere, but now that a man has been abused by a woman, no one is taking it up.

The chairperson of Busoga Mental Health Practitioners, Mr Julius Otai, suggests that the victim and suspect be put on suicide watch because they will often live regretting the hushed decision, and actions and will be haunted by guilt.
