Two men fight over dead child's paternity

Kampala - Two men in eastern Uganda district of Luuka exchanged blows and kicks over the dead body of a five-month-baby.
Zackary Munuulo and Abbas Isabirye were fighting at the home of the child's mother, Stella Namuwaya who fled immediately the men started fighting.
According to the brother of Namuwaya, Isac Bamutaze, his sister had an affair with both men before she became pregnant.
''She was playing the two men, deceiving each that he was the one responsible for the pregnancy. When she gave birth, she continued telling each of the men that he is father of the baby,'' said Bamutaze.
He said that each of the men was sending assistance to Namuwaya through mobile money. She ensured that when one visited her at her mother's home, the other one was not around.
But when the baby died from malaria, she was confused and somehow the two men learnt about it. They both went to collect the dead body for burial.
A fight ensued but local leaders separated them and referred the case to police who called for a DNA test to establish the child's real father.
