A 24-year-old mother in Yumbe District, West Nile sub-region has been charged with murd€r and remanded to prison after she allegedly k¡lled her four-month-old son and boiled him in a saucepan.
Nadio Manjubo, a resident of Chamanikua village, Yayari parish in Yumbe District is accused of k¡lling Angelo Buga whom she allegedly cut into pieces, stuffed in a saucepan and boiled “claiming she felt like eating meat”, according to police.
“She appeared before Yumbe Court and was remanded to Yumbe prison on Friday for murd€r,” said Police spokesperson, SCP Fred Enanga following the Wednesday afternoon k¡lling.
Mr Enanga condemned such acts of savagery, describing the k!lling which left a disturbing scene as horrific.
“To cut and dismember an innocent child into pieces is absolutely horrific,” he said in a Tuesday morning statement.
According to him, the k!lling shows how some parents have lost a sense of humanity and love for their children.
“We urge all parents in challenging domestic settings to always seek help from the Child and Family Protection Unit, the nearest police station or other child rights defenders. It is painful that the four-month-old son di€d from the hands of a mother, who was supposed to keep him safe,” the police publicist said of the k!lling, the first of its kind.
