Police in Rukungiri have arrested a mother for beheading her 18-month-old child.
CP Fred Enanga told the media this morning that Tukwasiibwe Felista a 22-year-old resident of Nyakatembe A cell, connived with her two brothers to murder the child, whose father had neglected his responsibility.
It is alleged that Nyamuhembwa Venansio a fish dealer, has not been supporting Tukwasiibwe and their son.
This prompted the diabolical woman together with her two brothers identified as Twinamatsiko Jackson and Garubanda Cypriano to kill the child.
All three have been arrested for the gruesome murder.
