Police is holding a woman only identified as Sarah who has reportedly been torturing a child everyday.
A concerned neighbour shared a video with social media blogger Ashburg Katto after reporting her to Kira police station where she is now being detained.
“She has been torturing this innocent kid every day until when we recorded her and reported to police,” the neighbour said.
“We have learnt that the biological mother of the kid went to Somalia since she’s a UPDF soldier… This merciless woman is called Sarah and she’s related to the husband who works in the auditor general’s office called Denise Ochidiri.”
Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed the arrest Friday.
“The couple was arrested and the woman charged with Aggravated torture, currently detained at Kira Division police station,” Luke said.
“Well its alleged the man knew that the wife was doing all this but decided to keep quiet.”
Luke confirmed that it was the neighbours that took up the matter of even recording some footage and complaining to police.
“The girl was bruised up, she was found with fresh wounds and scars, all from the beating of that woman.”
He added: “This has been going on for 11 months. The neighbours reported yesterday [Thursday].”
