In Iganga, a staunch Arsenal football fan is looking for a home for his family after he lost his house in a bet over a game between English clubs Arsenal and Manchester United.

Before the game, Henry Dhabasani staked his two-roomed house in a bet with Rashid Yiga, that Arsenal would win the game. On his part, Yiga staked his new Toyota Premio car and his wife that Manchester United would win.

The two put their stake in writing, with local leaders and fans witnessing the deed. Dhabasani, married to three wives with five children, fainted at the end of the match on realizing Arsenal had lost the game 1–0. On Monday, several Manchester United fans stormed Dhabasani’s home and threw him and his family out.

Putting the contract in writing does not make the gamble legal. Parliament needs to address the vice of sports gambling.

The two men were out of control. A wife is not a slave or a chattel.

The stupid things people do in the name of English football. This obsession with English clubs has gone to far.

In 2009 a Kenyan committed suicide when Arsenal lost to Man U and a Nigerian killed people when Man U lost to Barcelona.

Did you say local "leaders" witnessed the signing? And they stood by while this guy was being thrown out??
