Police in Mukono, a municipality in Uganda, has arrested a woman accused of feeding her step daughter food mixed with her menstrual blood.
The Mukono District Police Commander, Rogers Sseguya, identified the barbarian step mother as Annette Namata. She is a also resident of Mukono Central Division in Mukono Municipality.
The matter has been handed over to the Child and Family Protection Unit says Mr Sseguya, which is also helping the teenage girl recover from the psychological torment.
Mr Unusu Lungu, the husband of the woman says he got to know about the incident from the neighbours. They interfered to save the teenage girl when they saw the vomiting on the veranda.
Mr Lungu said, he couldn’t hold back his anger when he heard the news. He angrily attacked Annette at her workplace. She reportedly confessed saying that, she removed the blood from a bucket and mixed it with her food.
The Women Local Council representative, Sarah Namawejje, said Annette pleaded guilty and asked for forgiveness. She also claimed that she was ill advised by her friends to feed the girl with blood so as to turn her into a lunatic. This she did, so that she could get back her husband’s attention, which the girl had since deprived her of.
