A wife has slashed her husband’s penis off in Uganda after he refused to have sex with her as punishment for her continuous heavy drinking.

Beatrice Acen, 35, who returned home drunk at 10 pm on June 30 proceeded to demand sex from her husband, Moses Okot, a 46-year-old peasant farmer.

But Mr Okot said that he had returned home from hunting during the day, ate and gone to sleep when his wife attacked him with a knife.

Mrs Acen is now on the run, on her return to the house, called out to her husband to open the door for her.

He was already asleep and awoke to ‘find my pants wetted with blood,’ he said.

Mr Okot said he believes that his wife resorted to this drastic measure due to his longstanding method of punishing her for her ‘alcoholism, Daily Monitor reports.

‘As a man, I would no longer tolerate such, so I decided to deny her sex with the hope that she would reform,’ he said.

This is not the first time that Mrs Okot got physical when her husband denied her advances, the report claimed.

The chairman of the village where the couple lives is quoted as saying: ‘Last year, she broke this man’s collar bone during a domestic fight and ran away.’

He added that domestic violence is rife in the village with the women drinking as much as the men.

Mr Okot was taken to the local police station to file a complaint against his wife before being rushed to Apac main hospital where he is now receiving medical treatment.

Domestic violence is a big problem in Uganda, especially in northern Uganda where Mr Okot’s village is located.
