The boy who sustained injuries on the head would later bleed to death.

“We were alerted by area residents who had already apprehended the suspect, claiming he did not know what was going on because he was drunk at the time he committed the crime,” said Phillip Mukasa the police spokesperson Equator region.

“Neighbours became suspicious after the kid suddenly stopped crying. They stormed the suspect’s home where they found the kid’s body in a pool of blood with several wounds all over the head.”

Local Council 1 chairperson James Lukundo said Tumwesigye has been a full time drunkard ever since his wife abandoned him with his three kids and that he has been returning home late in the night.

Tumwesigye is currently being detained at Mubende police station awaiting charges of murder.
