AFRICAA fisherman from Kaliro district in Uganda has been hailed as a hero by his villagemates after he killed a crocodile that mauled his pregnant wife. Mubarak Batambuze, 56, of Kibuye village, Nawaikoke sub-county in Kaliro, used a spear to stab the crocodile in the stomach shortly after it had eaten his eight-month-pregnant wife, Demeteriya Nabwire. She was eaten by the crocodile during the early hours of last Sunday morning as she went to search for firewood on the shores of Lake Kyoga. Residents found slippers Nabwire was wearing, toes, fingers and a mobile phone at the spot where she was devoured by the deadly reptile. Batambuze said the same crocodile is believed to have eaten six women and children who had gone to fetch water at the same spot last year. He said after discovering that his wife had been killed by the crocodile, he went to the scene and found the beast still resting there. “I went to a blacksmith and paid him sh20,000 (£4.65, $7) so that he could make me a very sharp spear.” Batambuze stabbed the crocodile once in the stomach, looped it with a rope and pulled it towards the shore with the help of five other fishermen.

Listen, I don’t live a glamorous life by any means. Last time I checked the cabinet is stocked with generic brand cereal (Golden Puffs? I hate myself.), and the steering wheel has fallen off my 2003 Saab. Twice. Siri, the only woman in my life who actually pretended to care, even bounced from my Iphone 4s. But there’s no situation I can imagine where I would need to exact vengeance on a man-eating crocodile with a spear because it mauled my pregnant wife who was looking for firewood. Nope. Sometimes you just need to be thankful for what you got.

It’s nice to see the husband is chivalrous enough to murder his wife’s killer but gets away with sending her 8-month-old pregnant ass out to croc infested waters to fetch firewood. Going full Chubbs on the reptile is the perfect distraction.
