Kampala - A 45 yr old man is on the run after setting fire on his daughter accusing her of revealing that he was the one responsible for her pregnancy.
Police has identified the man as Sunday Tabona, a resident of Kamuli district in eastern Uganda.
The under age girl, whom police have refused to reveal her name because she is a minor, is now admitted at Mulago hospital in Kamuli district where she is undergoing treatment for fire wounds.
According to her mother Jesica Namuganza, her 15 yr old daughter told her that she was pregnant and her father was responsible.
" I took her to hospital for check up and it was confirmed that she was pregnant. When I told her father he denied being responsible," she said.
The girl said that when the mother went to the garden, her father called her and asked her who was responsible for her pregnancy.
" I told him that he was the one who slept with me and made me pregnant. He tied me with ropes and set fire on the clothes I was in, she said.
