A pregnant woman who was hospitalized for five days due to malaria was caught by her husband having sex with a 24-year-old man.
Although the Apac District police have undoubtedly seen it all, this case—which seems more fictitious than real—set new ground as relevant authorities debated what charges to press against the culprit.
Eventually, the 24-year-old who makes a meager living roasting meat in Apac Town was charged with causing a public nuisance.
The alleged offender allegedly entered the female ward at Apac Hospital last week and committed the crime there.
When the woman’s husband visited her after spending five days in the hospital, the suspect’s luck ran out. The 24-year-old male was caught doing it.
The incidence was confirmed by Mr. David Wills Ndaula, the police commander for the Apac District. He told the Daily Monitor that the police have started looking into the situation.
“We have preferred charges of causing public nuisance against the suspect, but we are still investigating and will update you at an appropriate time,” he said on Thursday.
The administrator of Apac Hospital, Mr. Joseph Onuk, expressed sadness over the occurrence, which he feels might have been avoided in the first place.
“I put the blame on the husband of this woman,” he said, adding, “How can you send your wife to the hospital and you take long without checking on her? Some men always say that they are so busy. Somebody who is not busy will take away your wife.”
Mr. Alex Okuta, a resident of Abwal “A” Village in Chegere Sub-county in the Apac District, has been identified as the spouse. He acknowledged that his ailing wife had been unfaithful.
“I made a surprise visit to the hospital to check on my wife then I found that man in bed with my pregnant wife,” he revealed, adding that his wife had been “admitted because she was suffering from malaria.”
