Ibanda: 25-year-old Woman Slaughters Son, Arrested

A 25-year-old woman has been arrested on accusations of murdering her own son.

Agnes Kembabazi, here a resident of Kataagi Ward in Bisheshe Division, Ibanda Municipality is currently detained at Ibanda Police Station to help in investigations.

She was picked from Fort Portal town where she had gone for work after reportedly committing the crime on Sunday night.

The 5-year toddler was allegedly hacked by his mother after the father insisted that the child was not his.

The situation turned worse when the father asked Kembabazi to take the son to his ‘real father’ or leave the home.

Locals told ChimpReports that on Sunday night, Kembabazi strangled her son to death and later decided to cut the body into very tiny parts.

The Rwizi Regional Police spokesperson Ibin Ssenkumbi confirmed that on Monday locals landed on the amputated body in a pit latrine before reporting the matter to police.

Ssenkumbi said the retrieved body parts were taken to Ibanda hospital for postmortem.

He says the suspect confessed to have committed the crime, claiming that she had no where to take the baby.
