Kampala - Paul Mugalula, a resident of Namyiya village in eastern Uganda district of Iganga Thursday shocked villagers when he stripped naked in the home of his in-laws.
According to the village Councillor Amuza Waibale, Mugalula who lives in the neighbouring village, stripped following a misunderstanding with is wife. He reportedly beat her seriously forcing her to flee to her parents home.
On Thursday morning, he went to the in-laws home with intention of taking his wife back.
On reaching there, his mother-in-law accused him of mistreating her daughter and threatened to undress.
"Mugalula had taken alcohol before going to the in-laws' home. So when the mother in-law threatened to undress, he told her that he is also ready to undress and show her his manhood,'' Waibale said.
He said that Mugalula stripped naked to the shock of the in-laws and his wife. The in-laws fled and locked themselves in the house as Mugalula chased his wife around the house.
Villagers ran to his wife's rescue and beat her husband up before forcing him to dress up. He left while hurling insults on whoever came his way.
In most parts of Uganda, it is a taboo for a man to show his nudity to his in-laws especially the parents of his wife. It is also a curse for a mother-in-law to strip before her son-in-law.
