Woman arrested over child torture


By Abubaker Kirunda

Police in Luuka District are holding a 34-year-old woman for allegedly torturing her 2-year-old grandson for routinely urinating on the bed.
The suspect, a resident of Busiro-Bwamba Village in Waibuga Sub-county, is said to have fastened a thread around the boy’s private parts and kept him inside the goats’ shed overnight.

Mr Joshua Kitimbo, the head teacher of Busiro Children’s Centre and neighbour to the suspect, arrested her and handed her over to police.
Police at Busiro Police Post confirmed that the suspect is in their custody. However, Kirikumwinno maintains that she wasn’t involved in the torture of her grandson.
