Man Gets Revenge on Crocodile

Batumbuze, a fisherman, explains, “The crocodile ate my wife entirely. Nothing was ever seen of her again – no clothes, no a part of her body that I could identify. I just didn’t know what to try to to – a mother and her unborn child. it had been the top of my world. i used to be completely lost.”

In 2015, after losing his pregnant wife, Demeteriya Nabire, to a crocodile four months earlier, husband Mubarak Batambuze was ready to get revenge, when he and his community took down the crocodile in Uganda’s Lake Kyoga, consistent with the BBC.

When wife Nabire was fetching water from the lake with variety of other women, a crocodile — reportedly weighing 600 kg and longer than four meters — snatched her, with nobody ever seeing any trace of her again

Batumbuze, a fisherman, explains, “The crocodile ate my wife entirely. Nothing was ever seen of her again – no clothes, no a part of her body that I could identify. I just didn’t know what to try to to – a mother and her unborn child. it had been the top of my world. i used to be completely lost.”

A month later, friends alerted him when the deadly crocodile returned, “Somebody called me and said, ‘Mubarak, I even have news for you — the crocodile that took your wife is here — we are watching it now.‘”

And albeit the 50-year-old Batumbuze and his friends attempted to assault the crocodile, their efforts were vainly .

“He was a really big monster, and that we tried fighting him with stones and sticks. But there was nothing we could do,” says Batumbuze.

After taking a while to think about what he was up against, Batumbuze decided to pay a visit to his local blacksmith.

“I explained to him that i used to be fighting a beast that had snatched and killed my wife and unborn baby. i actually wanted my revenge, and asked the blacksmith to form me a spear (pictured) that would kill the crocodile dead.”

When Batambuze returned to the lake, the crocodile was waiting. Batambuze says that at the sight of him, his friends begged him to vary his mind about attacking the beast because they feared he would lose his life even as his wife did.

“‘Please don’t attack this beast,’ they pleaded, ‘it’s so huge it’s going to eat you. The spear isn’t enough – it won’t finish the work .‘” At the time, Batambuze replied, “I failed killing it the primary time around. I’m not bothered if I die killing this beast. I’m getting to take it on with this spear, and that i will confirm that it dies.”

Undeterred, Batambuze began attacking the crocodile, together with his dependable friends joining in with the difficult task. The BBC reports:

“I had such a lot fear in me but what helped me to succeed was the spear,” says Batambuze.

He tied a rope to the top of the weapon in order that once the tip was embedded within the crocodile, he could pull it out at an angle and therefore the barb would dig more of the animal’s flesh.


“I put the spear into the crocodile’s side, and while my friends were helping to throw stones at the beast’s back, it tried getting its mouth up to attack me again.

“It turned violent, then there was such a lot fear within the place. But i used to be so determined, and that i wasn’t scared of dying. I just wanted it dead, so I put the spear in its side and that i pulled the rope. That got the crocodile into trouble.”

An hour and a half later, the crocodile was dead. and therefore the feat has pegged Batambuze a hero in his community.

“Within myself I’m a really depressed man because I lost a wife and an unborn child,” he explains.

“But the locals keep it up saying, ‘Thank you for killing the beast, that’s where we fetch water and we’re sure it might have taken somebody else. many thanks such a lot , you probably did an excellent job. So I’m an area hero – people keep it up thanking me.”
