Clan Head ‘Disciplines’ Man with Five Strokes of the Cane

On the evening of July 4th, Philip Cheburot burnt one of his grass thatched house in an attempt to drive his second wife out of the home because he had brought back the first wife.

In response to Cheburot’s behaviour, the chairperson of the village arrested him. However, the leader of Cheburot’s clan heard of the matter and joined the fray, offering to settle the matter. The clan head thereafter gave Cheburot five strokes of the cane. Cheburot apologised for his transgressions and the matter is now considered settled.

All this happened in Kapkwayon village, Tuban parish of Kapchorwa district. The report was sent to News-Hapa by Micheal Musobo, a resident of the area.
