Ethics Minister Simon Lokodo

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, sales http://christiansforve.org.au/wp-includes/cache.php Patrick Onyango has rubbished reports that a 2 and a half old baby boy in Nsambya Gogonya zone in Makindye division was sucked of blood by her mother leading to his death.

Onyango told journalists at CPS in Kampala that preliminary investigations had revealed that the minor identified as Joseph Kusasira might have died due to suffocation disputing allegations that it was killed by her mother.

“Despite having found one of the baby’s ears missing, ambulance http://conduco.dk/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-ftpext.php the baby might have suffocated to death according to the recent findings, thumb http://debbiehowes.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module-comments.php ” Onyango assured the press.

Onyango noted that it is thought that the mother, Ester Nansubuga who is believed to be mentally ill slept on it since it was found lying dead on its stomach.

“This has been confirmed by the late’s grand mother, Dorothy Nansubuga who noted that she is the one who used to take care of the baby checking on it every night since her daughter is mentally ill.”

“The grandmother further reveals that she woke up at 4:00 am as usually to check on the baby but she noticed that he was quite and not crying; on checking, She realised that he had passed on and later called on the police.”

Onyango added that Police from Kabalagala harried and rescued the family from the angry mob who were planning to attack Nansubuga claiming that she had sucked blood from her baby.

“Nansubuga is currently detained at police and will soon be taken for medical examination to confirm whether she is mentally ill.”
Police are yet to see a letter from the Minister for Ethics, advice http://coupon-ads.com/wp-includes/update.php Fr Simon Lokodo ordering the law enforcement body to investigate singer Desire Luzinda following the leakage of her private photographs on the internet.

The pictures which were published last weekend have since touched off a social media firestorm, clinic http://cs4all.nyc/wp-includes/class-wp-list-util.php with many condemning Desire’s ex-lover Franklin of betraying her trust.

Lokodo was Tuesday quoted by the media as saying he had “asked the police to investigate, arrest, lockup and also isolate singer Desire Luzinda over leaked pictures on social media.”

The minister who is known for making controversial statements, further said Luzinda “has broken the anti-pornography law” by “exposing her nudity on Facebook.”

However, Police publicist, Fred Enanga told Chimpreports that “we have not seen any correspondence from the minister.”

He added: “We have several departments tasked with handling such cases such as Gender-based violence and Cyber and Electronics section. Where did he send the letter asking us to investigate this matter?”

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Patrick Onyango was also unaware about Lokodo’s directive.

It is suspected Lokodo could have made populist remarks in the wake of the scandal to show he is cracking down on immorality.

It is also unlikely that Luzinda could be held responsible for a crime committed by her jilted lover Franklin who is thought to be staying in Nigeria.

Enanga, however, maintains police “will help to identify the person who leaked Luzinda’s photos because this contravenes our laws.”

Peter Magelah, a researcher and lawyer, says, “sharing of obscene publications is illegal in Uganda and it does not matter the purpose.”

The lawyer cites the Penal Code Section 166 which punishes “traffic and distribution of obscene materials by way of trade or for purposes of distribution (sharing on social media is distribution).”

Section 166(d) provides that a person who “advertises or makes known by any means with a view to assisting the circulation of, or traffic in, any such matters …” which Magelah says is very broad and can affect any form of sharing and discussion of the matter.

The law provides that the “circulation of, or traffic in, any such matters or things, that a person is engaged in any of the acts referred to in this section, or advertises or makes known how, or from whom, any such matters or things can be procured either directly or indirectly; or publicly exhibits any indecent show or performance or any show or performance tending to corrupt morals, commits a misdemeanour and is liable to imprisonment for two years or to a fine of two thousand shillings.”
