Paul Owoli, the DPC Buikwe police station, reveals that the couple was staying in Kibuye, a nearby Kampala suburb, before Namuddu decided to shift and stay in her home village in Buikwe.

“We urge all those experiencing problems within their marriage to always come to police for counselling and guidance, because we have a unit of child and family protection in all police stations in Uganda,” Owoli advised.

Cases of this nature are not common but they are related to those where of recent young mothers have been dumping newly born children in pit latrines, claiming to lack financial assistance extended to them by fathers of the children, for the better living of the born child and the mother.

Owoli affirmed that Namuddu will be charged with murder whereas police is yet to find out whether the father of the deceased has not been extending assistance to his family and if proven guilty will also be charged.

Apparently, the victim revealed that Ssebyatto called her to his room promising her a chapatti before committing the crime.

On hearing the bad news, the mother of the victim made an alarm, area residents started a search, found Ssebyatto and started mob action on him, but he was later rescued by police.

The child has been taken to Mulago National Referral hospital and latest results reveal that the child has been abused.

Hassan Musooba, the OC CID Kawempe police station, cautions parents to keep a close eye on their children especially as the holiday goes on.

He further advised parents to look after their children by themselves, because cases of incest have been witnessed, the act of leaving toddlers behind with their uncles and cousins may lead to committing of a related crime.

This becomes the third victim to be defiled in a week’s time in Kampala and it’s neighbourhood; last Saturday, two cases were witnessed where a four year-old and an eight year-old were defiled in Wakiso.

“Ssebyatto will be taken to court after investigations and is likely to face charges of aggravated defilement,” OC CID Kawempe police station said.
