Woman stabs own baby to death

13 May 2015, 21:43 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - A woman claiming that the father of her one-week-old baby has denied responsibility shocked her neighbors when she stabbed the baby to death.

Shariwa Kawala, 24, a resident of Bugembe town,82 kms east of Kampala has ever since she gave birth a week ago been complining about the father of the baby not providing her with any help.

One of her neighbors and friend, Damalie Namwase said, ''Kawala has been telling us that if the father of the baby does not give her money for food, she will do something terrible. We thought she was joking.''

She added that they were shocked last evening when Kawala locked herself in her house and stabbed the baby with a knife.

''We heard the baby crying loudly. We tried to enter her house but she had locked from inside. We broke into the house only to find her stabbing the baby,'' she explained.

The baby died a few minutes after the neighbors entered the house. They arrested and handed her to the police.

The area police commander, Felix Mugizi condemned the act and advised women who give birth and fail to get help from the man responsible to hand the babies over to children homes instead of killing them.
