Man beats wife into a comma over missing gizzard

Kampala - A man who slaughtered a chicken and left his wife preparing it for supper went wild when she failed to serve him the gizzard, beating her into comma.
Silvester Mudungo, a resident of Kabutye village in Kaliro district said he slaughtered one of his family cocks because he wanted chicken meat.
After slaughtering it, he gave it to his wife Zubeda Nabirye to cook for supper then left for a drinking spree.
In the evening, one of Zubeda’s relatives visited her and he served him with some parts of the chicken including the gizzard.
In that Kabutye's tradition, the gizzard is served to either the head of the home or a special visitor and since Zubeda’s close relative had visited, she thought it wise to serve him the gizzard.
When Mudungo returned home at night and was served food and sauce without the gizzard, he went wild. He inquired from his wife what had happened to the gizzard and she said she had served it to a visitor.
It was then that he started to thrash her thoroughly.
One of the neighbors who ran to her rescue, Apollo Mwiru said, ''He was beating the woman with a big stick. When we arrived there, she was already in a coma but he was still beating her.''
Mwiru said they arrested the man and took him to police as they carried the woman to hospital for treatment.
