Woman Arrested for Strangling 2-year-old Child to Death

The police in Hoima have arrested a 28-year-old woman for allegedly strangling her 2-year-old child. The suspect is Annet Katusiime 28, a resident of Kitongole village in Kyabigambire sub-county 

The incident reportedly came to be known on Thursday after residents noticed that the child was missing and tasked the mother to explain the whereabouts of the child.

When the residents threatened to lynch Katusiime, she admitted to having strangled the child and secretly buried him in a sugarcane plantation. She later led the residents to where she had buried the child. 

The residents alerted the police who exhumed the body that was taken to Hoima city mortuary. 

Alex Mwesigwa, the LCIII Chairperson for Kyabigambire sub-county says that for a long time, the suspect accused the husband, Peter Kasaija of excessive consumption of alcohol and not providing for the family. 

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson said that the suspect is currently in custody at the Hoima Central police station.
