37 year old father in trouble for torturing his own children

The Police have arrested a 37-year-old man for allegedly torturing and starving his own children.

The suspect is Ivan Kisekka, a resident of Kakoma village in Kisseka Sub County. He is detained at Lwengo district Central Police for allegedly starving and causing grievous body injuries on his sons, aged five and three years.

According to Muhammad Nsubuga the Greater Masaka Regional Police Spokesperson, the suspect was arrested following a tip-off from the village defense secretary who reported a case of child neglect in the area.

The police recovered the victims and ascertained that they were being starved in addition to being subjected to physical torture.  They have also established that the suspect earlier divorced his wife and instead turned the anger on his children.  

The Defense Secretary at Kakoma village Robert Mukyazi who reported the case says that the children were malnourished and had visible scars and fresh wounds on their bodies, an indication that they were suffering abuse, which prompted them to seek police for action against the culprits.  

During interrogation, however, the suspect told police that he never intended to torture the children, arguing that he was only disciplining them.
