Waitress beheads her 2-month-old daughter, attempts suicide

A waitress working with a pork joint in Kafunda trading centre, Bulago, Wakiso district has been arrested for allegedly beheading her two-month-old baby. 

Robinah Nakazibwe reportedly used a panga and a knife to kill her baby, Precious yesterday, Wednesday. Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy Kampala police spokesperson, said Nakazibwe also attempted to commit suicide after the act by cutting her wrist so she could bleed to death. 

Shocked by the act, residents in the area alerted local leaders and police. Bulaga police have since embarked on investigations to unearth all whatever could have triggered Nakazibwe to kill her own child.

Nakazibwe has since been rushed to Family Clinic in Bulaga trading centre where she is nursing wounds she sustained while attempting to commit suicide.

Detectives recovered among other exhibits from the scene; two pangas and one knife all covered with bloodstains. Precious’ body has been taken to City mortuary, Mulago hospital for post-mortem.

This incident comes on the heels of an on-going investigation to establish why another woman, Juliet Naggayi allegedly dumped her nine-year-old son in a swamp in Kabulengwa in Nansana, Wakiso district on Sunday night. Naggayi allegedly picked Lukwago while he was sleeping and threw him in a swamp. He was however rescued by passers-by.

Deputy police spokesperson, Polly Namaye, said Naggayi filed a case of disappearance at Kabumbi police and also informed her husband that the child had gone missing.

According to police, after being rescued, the boy narrated that it was his own mother who dumped him in the swamp. The boy explained that he survived drowning because he held himself on the grass.

With the current harsh conditions in the country that even to feed oneself is a hurdle to jump what of a sex worker with an infant to care?

Certainly the seemingly obvious best solution is to rid off the kid. There are many more out there and this should be a wake up call to the relevant ministry and government.

But with our Uganda of today nobody is concerned and is business as nothing has happened.

We have never experienced such episodes in Uganda before. What has really, really befallen our beloved nation?

The politicians must start listening to the elders from the grassroots and every voice of Ugandans. They aloe have allowed this country to develop into one hell of an abyss; corruption s rampant, dubious religious groups confuse citizens, politicians bicker and fight among themselves while squirelling tendrils of taxpayers cash into foreign banks. This state of affair must sop and stop right now!

In other words and according to Dr. Spire Ssentongo, "who is producing and distributing anger to Ugandans?"

In other words, ill prepared for urban life and without other safety nets, the current economic hardship is driving many Ugandans nuts.

Many of our traditional village folks flock to Kampala (urban centers) thinking they are going to Heaven, only to find themselves deep in Hell.

And that is why out of ignorance, our "Problem of Africa", Mr. M7 should not dismiss and belittles studies in the Universities programmes such Swsa (Social Work Social Administration); which is valued throughout the world.

"Mr. M7 should not dismiss and belittles studies in the Universities programmes such Swsa (Social Work Social Administration); which is valued throughout the world."

Dear Mr. Lakwena, the days when leaders would think of the importance of University studies has long ended according to this govt. of thieves, looters etc.

By the way, who told you that they are interested to see Ugandans advance in eduction? If that was the case, how can a woman without a certificate be nominated as Education Minister as if Ugandans have never been to school?

These people only think of the interests of their families, how they will live without being disturbed tomorrow in case they are kicked out of the country.
Do you know how many pass ports each one of them goes along with?

The hell-on-earth life Ugandans are living is not their problem. They have after all, amassed billions of dollars kept in their second native countries which will make them live like Kings tomorrow.

WINNER, understood, but,

Change & ensuring good governance is done by the people & Uganda is no exception to this, reason developed world will watch in silence what goes on in Uganda, unless our people ACT to bring change.

Without bringing down the tribalistic system, no developed country will blame Museveni!

Either Ugandans bring change or shouldn't have babies!

Many European countries are entising women with more allowances, to have more babies as their population is +60% over 60 years!

Ugandans MUST wake up!

rubangakene, understood, but,

Only Ugandans, in UNITY, can stop the waste & give chance to the next generation!

It's the poor, sick without healthcare, young without jobs nor education...who bring change & not otherwise!

Ugandans cannot afford to plan a future with a ruler who tribally divided & failed them for 34 years, yet is set to conclude his 35 years in power & begin the 36 th & through fake election!

Museveni will rule as long as Ugandans remain spectators, commentators, afraid!

The rest of the world rose/are rising up in UNITY for change, why not Ugandans?

Unofficially divided Libya at armed war gets help from developed world!

But officially, legally, constitutionally tribally divided Uganda will NEVER!

Not even UK will help Acholi this time as they are with Museveni.

Lakwena, agreed, but,

Uganda belongs to Ugandans & it's them who have the power to ensure their living through good governance!

Yet Museveni will begin 36 years of rule & Ugandans haven't understood it's them, in UNITY & not tribalistically divided & ruled by the migrant, who have the power to say NO to abuse of their hospitality!

Do Ugandans need more years to understand the situation while Museveni rules?

Zaitun, understood, but,

Ugandans gave Museveni shelter, brought him to power in the zone formed by their tribal lands, then made him their chief tribal leader!

Ugandans must make their stand, say NO to migrant Museveni they adopted as a brother, unaware he had a different agenda!

Isn't it time Ugandans do as the rest of the world; UNITE for common purpose against common enemy?

Ugandans are not even aware the tribalistic system lockes them with Museveni, shuts the outside world out, thus leave Museveni free to do as he wishes without any outsider blaming him!

Hanging on to the tribalistic system, Ugandans tell the outside world; "leave us alone in peace with Museveni"!

But is it so?
