Mother burns son's private parts with polythene bag

18 May 2015, 14:47 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Police in South eastern district of Kagadi are holding a 25-year-old woman who allegedly severely burnt the private parts of her four-year-old son.

The arrested woman has been identified by police as Ruth Komuhangi. She accused her son of stealing a piece of fish meant for sauce.

According to her neighbour, Peruse Ahabwe, Komuhangi set a polythene bag on fire and let it drip on her son's private parts after she caught him eating the fish.

The burning polythene drippings burnt deep into the boy's private parts causing severe pain to him.

''The boy cried loudly in pain. Many people turned up to see what was amiss and were shocked to see what Komuhangi was doing'' said Ahabwe.

They arrested and handed her to police as the boy was rushed to the hospital.

The officer in charge of Kagadi police, Joseph Ayesiga condemned Komuhangi's act and said that she will be taken to court to answer to charges of attempted murder and torture.

Medical officers at Kagadi hospital where the boy has been admitted said that a lot of damage was done on his private parts to the extent that he may never function sexually.
