The Councillor for Pece Division, in Gulu Municipality, Francesca Amony has been accused of burning her housemaid with fire for stealing Shs 2,000.
Reports emerged on social media on Friday that the youthful Councillor tortured the yet to be named teenage girl, early this week when she realized that her money was missing.
When contacted on phone, the Aswa Regional Police Spokesman, Jimmy Okema Awany confirmed the matter that is already being investigated.
“It is true a case has been reported and already under investigation but I’m yet to be briefed,” Okema said.
Many social media users in the northern town have condemned the alleged actions of the Councillor who is said to be eyeing the position Gulu Woman Member of Parliament in 2021.
