A Tanzanian man is cooling his feet in a Dar Es- Salaam hospital after his attackers chopped off his manhood when busted with the attacker’s wife.
Reports from a local publisher indicate that the man only identified as Sebastian, a police reservist, was caught in the act with the attacker’s wife who told him to ‘choose his punishment.”
Witnesses at the Majengo, Tunduma, near the Zambian border, claim that the reservist ‘lured’ the woman from a shop that she ran in the area claiming that he did not carry money and that she should instead follow him to his house to get it.
The two, however, took long prompting the husband to mount a search.
Flanked by three men, he went to the man’s house and demanded answers. After busting him in the act, Sebastian was reportedly told to choose his punishment; to either have his leg or manhood chopped off.
“Walipomwambia achague adhabu akabaki kuwaomba msamaha, walipoona anashindwa kuchagua, wakaamua kumkata nyeti,” a witness told Global Publishers.
Chuki Kibaya, a neighbour, narrated that he found Sebastian writhing in pain while clutching his severed gland.
“Tulipofika Polisi tulitoa taarifa na baadaye kupatiwa fomu namba tatu ‘PF-3’ kwa ajili ya matibabu kisha tukampeleka hospitalini kupatiwa matibabu katika Kituo cha Afya cha Tunduma,” said the victim’s brother Lackson Mwazembe.
Taking law in own hands
Area leader Kajambo Mwampanja has meanwhile cautioned residents against taking the law into their hands.
“Hadi sasa taratibu za kuwasiliana na Serikali ya Wilaya ya Nakonde kuwapata watuhumiwa zinafanyika licha ya kuwa bado majina yao hayajafahamika. lla viongozi wangu wa wilaya tayari nimewasiliana nao na wameniambia kuwa wanalishughulikia sakata hili,” said Mwampanja.
