Man, police officers fight over head of a dead child
There was drama in Mityana district in central Uganda on Tuesday when a man and officers of police fought over the head of a three-week old child that was recovered from a swamp in Namukozi-Piida LCI in Mityana town council on weekend.
The police have identified the man who fought with the police as Alex Semuyaba. The district CID Mityana, Ms Faith Apio says they recovered head of the child after a tip off from area residents.
The head is currently in Mityana hospital mortuary as investigations to establish the people behind the murder continues. Alex Ssemuyaga and his relatives claim the head belongs to their child who went missing a few days ago. Due to increasing cases of poverty and despotic political leadership in Uganda, some people have resorted to human sacrifice in pretext that the evil spirits may hear their prayers and give them wealth.
