A Ugandan maid who assaulted an 18 months old toddler has been jailed for four years. Jolly Tumuhirrwe 22, was exposed in a secret filming while beating, kicking and stamping on the baby left in her care.
Tumuhiirwe on Friday, told the court in Kampala that the attack was as a result of the ill treatment she got from the child's mother. The Chief Magistrate Lilian Buchan told Tumuhiirwe that she had perpetrated an "unjustifiable and inexcusable" crime and as such the sentence was the right measure for the "ruthlessness exhibited" on an "innocent, helpless child", reports the AFP news agency.
