A woman in Uganda has accused her husband of forcing her to breastfeed his five dogs.
Judith Nabakooba, of the Uganda Police Force told Xinhua that Nathan Amoloi forced his wife Jennifer Alupot to breastfeed his five dogs because they had no milk due to his cows being taken away from him by Jennifer’s family in exchange for her hand in marriage.
“Investigations are still going on, the man was arrested but later released on police bond,” Nabakooba said.
[quote]The couple have actually been married for 11 years and have three children together. A fourth child, their third born, recently died from rabies which is being blamed on the fact the child was sharing it’s mother’s breasts with five mangy dogs. None of the dogs however have died from rabies.
“I produced four children but one of them died last year. I now have a three-month-old baby but my husband has been forcing me to share the breast milk with his five puppies,” Jennifer Alupot said.
The police initially dismissed the case, calling Jennifer Alupot insane after hearing her statement. But Matia Kasaija, the minister of state for internal affairs has told press that he considers this a very serious accusation and he is sending a team of investigators to get to the bottom of the affair.
“This is a serious matter. I will ensure that this woman gets justice,” Kasaija said.
Women’s rights activists have called for the death penalty.
