The 27year old Imam of Kyampisi Masigid Noor mosque in Kayunga District, Sheikh Mohammed Mutumba who unknowingly got involved in an Islamic wedding (Nikah) with a fellow man has been suspended from his clerical work by Muslim leaders in the district.
Mutumba wedded this fellow man who was previously known as Swabullah Nabukeera two weeks ago and stayed with him all this time without knowing that his new “wife” was the same sex as him.
The regional Kadhi sheikh, Abdul Noor Kakande says sheik Mutumba is under investigation over the “unfortunate” incident and Sheikh Isa Busuulwa, the head Imam of Masjid Noor of Kyampisi added that Mutumba had been suspended from his duties.
Sheikh Busuulwa who was present at the wedding reception that took place at Mutumba’s grandmother’s home in Kymapisi trading center claims that mosque leaders did not participate in preparations for the wedding.
The truth about Ms. Nabukeera real sex came out when the police realized that ‘she’ has male sex organs during body search after being arrested on charges of stealing television set from a neighbor’s house.
On further questioning by police it came to be known that his name is Richard Tumushabe and not nabukeera as he claimed. Tumushabe is still in the police cell facing charges of false pretense, impersonation among other charges.
