Man who sent Kadaga child’s head remanded


The man accused of killing a four-year- old girl and took the head to Parliament as a ‘gift’ to the Speaker has been remanded to Masaka Main Prison.

Joseph Nuwashaba, 22, appeared before Masaka Grade One Magistrate Grace Wakooli on Friday before he was charged with murder.

Prosecution alleges that on September 13, 2020 at Kijjabwemi A Village, Masaka City, Nuwashaba murdered Faith Kyamagero, a daughter of Charles Ssenyonga, dumped the torso in a nearby Kumbu Forest Reserve and later took the head to Parliament where he was intercepted by police.

Nuwashaba was a casual labourer at Ssenyonga’s home.


He was charged with three counts; murder, aggravated defilement and trafficking in children for purposes of human sacrifice.
