Newvision THE Police and army officers in Mityana rescued a Muslim man who was being forced to eat pork on Sunday. Ali Kaaya had vowed to go against Islam and eat pork if his candidate, Henry Kamya Makumbi of NRM, did not win the Mityana South parliamentary seat. He then made a written bet with his workmate, Issa Lwanyaga, a driver at Busimbi Lorry Park and a supporter of Ssozi Kaddu Mukasa. As luck would have it, Makumbi lost the polls on Friday. On Sunday morning, after the Electoral Commission announced Kaddu Mukasa as the winner, the drivers got hold of Kaaya and bought a kilo of roast pork. As they roasted it, a few others tried to rescue him but failed. Some Police officers on a patrol vehicle also attempted to rescue Kaaya but failed. Later, more armed Police together with UPDF soldiers arrived and rescued Kaaya. He was taken to Mityana Police Station for safe custody. There was no need for the security operatives to intervene. We signed the agreement between us and a few of our colleagues witnessed it. This is why I was not afraid even when they came with guns because I have the written agreement, Lwanyaga said as he brandished his document. He vowed to make Kaaya fulfil his bet when he returned to the workplace. I am a Muslim so when I made this agreement, I knew I would not eat pork but I would apologise and pay a fine. This is what Kaaya should have done but he resisted paying the fine. I have the agreement, I will take him to court, Lwanyaga added. Muslim leaders in Mityana district warned their flock against such behaviour. We should respect and abide by our religion, Sheikh Ali Kasaliko, the district Khadi said.
