AN elderly man of Kiyambya in Buhesi Sub-county was knocked by a cycle. The old man, who was not badly hurt amused people by making the outrageous demand. According to an eye witness, the man, who was a habitual drunkard, was staggering home. Unfortunately, he was knocked down by a speeding cycle, which sent him flying into a nearby bush. But good samaritans who witnessed the accident caught up with him after a brief chase and dragged him back to the scene to assess the damages. Although the man was lying down, he could talk properly. Negotiations went on in the crowd of people and he was asked how much he intends to take for treatment, he declared in Rutooro, “Oranyongerayo akato kawaragi, nyowe kuganyire,” meaning that they add him a Pepsi bottle full of K.K. waragi and he would forgive him. But the councillors and the people around told the offender to give the old man money and leave it up to him to take waragi or go for treatment. The man was given sh10,000. ends
