Simon Peter Olara, a security guard working in Tororo could not bring his erection down after having sex with Christine Aboth the 23 year-old wife to Jaffar Wambede, a radio and TV technician from Malaba, reports the Ugandan New Vision newspaper. The married couple were separated at the time of the incident.
Olara 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 unsuccessful medical examination at St. Anthony’s Hospital, acquaintances took him to Malaba police station to assist him in persuading the aggrieved husband to forgive him, in case he was responsible.
The married couple had separated after repeated Aboth suffered repeated miscarriages but Wambede accused her of having abortions. Before abandoning her, he allegedly promised her that she would never be happy with another man. An allegation he emphatically denied to police.
Michael Odongo, the Malaba regional police spokesperson said Wambede’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 Olaro’s life.
