For losing a betting stake worth U.shs 500,000 when Monaco overcame Arsenal football club 3-1 in a European champions league fixture, Deus Ruhinda a resident of Kakiika in Mbarara district did the unthinkable - hung himself to death.

An eye witness intimated to Kawowo Sports that the decision resulted from a betting receipt gone sour.

The deceased (Ruhinda) was working in Kasese district, took a decision to terminate his life after losing Shs 500,000 in a European Champions League match bet.

The deceased was a bodaboda (motorbikes used for public transport) rider and the money he staked was reportedly belonging to his boss in Kasese. Upon the news from the bet, he moved back to his home village (where he had left six years back) and committed suicide.

The witness says, Ruhinda, whose mother and father had died was lost for any action as he narrated the incident to his relatives - many of them condemning him apart from the grand mother - Nalongo Geturiida, who expressed commiseration.

He became more angry as the guardians rebuked him for not coming back to see them and vowed never to assist him in any way nor give a single penny to overcome the situation.

On Friday afternoon, Ruhinda was found dead hanging on an avocado tree in the family banana plantation. The deceased left behind a suicide note, explaining why he committed suicide but requested his relatives to pay his debt. Local Police was called at the scene and it allowed the relatives to carry on with the burial.

Ruhinda's ordeal is another of the ever multiplying number of suicide, stress and related incidents arising from betting and passionate cheering of sports events particularly football.

The stories of people staking household property, cheaply selling off valuables to raise money for betting and husbands staking wives and children are common.

The last death related incident vis-a-vis the occurrence of a football happened last September when Fahad Mudsana, a footballer with Uganda Premier League army side, Simba Sports Club breathed his last upon Frank Lampard's goal for Manchester City against Chelsea.

Ironically, the doctor's report released 4 days later indicated Musana had died of Pneumonia.
