PRISON authorities are investigating circumstances under which a man spent two days in Luzira Women’s Prison ward. `

The man identified as Brian Ayebale alias Patience Birungi was on March 12 was charged with impersonation at Kampala City Hall Court and remanded to Luzira Women’s Prison as a ‘woman.’

At the time of arrest, Ayebale had plaited hair and was dressed in skin-tight female leggings.

He reportedly identified himself to the Police as Patience Birungi.

He was remanded with 21 suspected prostitutes who had been rounded up in an operation on Kampala streets by the Police.

A source said on arrival at Luzira, Ayebale was given a loose fitting female prison uniform, which helped hide his bosom.

The source added that Ayebale’s behaviour on the first day was tolerated by other inmates and interpreted as being some kind of withdrawal that is normally associated with first-time inmates.

“During the day, he would sit alone by the fence. When he continued this behaviour, it made other inmates suspicious that he was planning to escape,” the source said.

The source added that on some occasions Ayebale was caught peeping at naked inmates with whom he was sharing the same ward.
“Because of congestion and the heat, most of the women prefer to sleep naked at night,” the source said.

The source added that the inmates became more suspicious whenever Ayebale refused to bathe with them, feigning sickness.

Their suspicions prompted the other inmates to alert the prison warden.

The warden is reported to have summoned Ayebale and ordered him to be thoroughly searched, only to discover that he was male.
He has since been transferred to Murchison Bay Prison where male suspects are held.

The discovery that Ayebale was a man is said to have drawn mixed reactions from the women.

Some reportedly said they missed a chance to have sex since they were serving long sentences with no hopes of returning to their homes soon to meet their male partners.
Others became furious that a man had for two nights been seeing their nakedness and sharing in their secrets.
