Man jailed for lacing wife's underwear with pepper

He claimed to be 'only making fun' of his wife

The Lira Grade One Magistrate Hilary Kiwanuka convicted Moses Okello, a resident of Barmola village, Bala Sub County in Kole District on Thursday, February 1.

Okello smeared his wife’s underwear with red pepper without her knowledge and persuaded her to wear them.

He said he admired me more in that underwear whenever I wore it. He then encouraged me to put it on that day.

I developed unbearable irritation shortly after putting on the knickers, which did not go away even after bathing, the woman told the court.

The woman told the court that she developed unexpected swelling in her private parts and that’s when she sought help from a doctor.

Okello pleaded guilty, saying he was only “making fun of his wife”.
