In a bizarre and shocking case, an Imam (a religious leader of a mosque) in Uganda was in a state of shock and embarrassment after he found out that his newly-wedded wife is actually a man. 

Ugandan Imam discovers his wife is a man two weeks after wedding 

The Imam has been identified as Mohammed Mutumba, who along with his "bride" got married and signed a marriage contract in a traditional nikah ceremony two weeks back.

According to Daily Nation reports, the Imam and his "wife" had not had any sexual relationship prior to their marriage. The couple did not even consummate the marriage as the bride had said that she was on her periods. 

The shocking part comes when the great discovery was made not by the man himself but by the neighbours. While speaking to a local media, the Imam said "I was patient and waited for her to be ok". Also, the Imam's neighbours alleged that they seen his "wife" jumped over a wall to steal their belongings which was a television set and clothes. 

That is when the neighbours concluded that the 'new bride' was a man. Following which, the neighbours filed a case against the 'new bride'. The Imam and his "wife" arrived at the police station. The woman had worn Islamic clothes and sandals, Daily Nation further reported. 

The case unfolded when, a police officer, who was putting the new bride behind the bars, searched the suspect and was shocked. "As a normal practice, a female police officer searched the suspect thoroughly before taking ''her'' to the cells. But, to the shock of the officer, the suspect had stacked clothes in the bra to hoodwink them that they were breasts," Isaac Mugera, Kayunga District Criminal Investigations Officer said. 

Curious police started their search, after which they found that the suspect (new bride) had male genitals. During interrogation, the suspect confessed that he had married and fooled the Imam for his money. Currently, the suspect will be charged with impersonation and theft.  

Further inquiring about how they met, the Imam said that he seen her at Kyampisi Mosque and said that, "I was looking for a woman to marry and when I met a beautiful girl wearing a hijab; I asked her for love and she accepted. She told me we could not have sex until I take bride price to her parents and also exchange marriage vows with her."
