Police in Mukono, Uganda have arrested a woman accused of forcefully feeding her teenage step daughter food mixed with her menstrual blood.

Annet Namata’s husband, Unusu Lungu in an interview with Observer, revealed that he learnt concerning the stunning incident from his neighbours who intervened to avoid wasting {the teenager}’s life once they noticed her vomiting on the veranda after the suspect had left to go and entice grasshoppers.

He says the curious residents requested {the teenager} what had occurred however she couldn’t communicate and as an alternative pointed at a plate of food contained in the sitting room. The irritated residents notified Lungu after giving {the teenager} scorching water to clean her mouth, garlic and charcoal powder to swallow.

Lungu says he couldn’t withhold his anger and attacked Namata at her office. She reportedly confessed and blamed the lady, saying that she eliminated the blood from a bucket and mixed it with her food. According to Lungu, the suspect fled into hiding when he left to report the matter to native authorities.

“She mixed the blood with the sauce made of eggplants. She forced the teenager to eat it threatening her that she would strangle her and vanish. So I asked her to eat the food herself and that is when she confessed and said that indeed the food contained menstrual blood. But she blamed the daughter as the one who went and removed the blood from her knickers and added it to the food so she could be blamed.” stated Lungu.

The village council leaders thereafter sweet-talked Namata on cellphone and satisfied her to return for mediation. Sarah Namawejje, the Women LC I consultant says Namata pleaded responsible to the accusations and requested for forgiveness.

She claimed that she was unwell suggested by her pals to feed the minor with menstrual blood in order to show her right into a lunatic. Namata claimed that she felt infuriated due to the preferential care that her husband was giving to {the teenager}.

Namwejje says that the case weighed closely on the Village Women Council, which prompted them to handover the suspect to police.

“She told me that her husband ‘loved his daughter so much to the point of even beating me in case I annoyed her. Every nice thing my husband was giving it to her.’ I asked if indeed it is true that she gave her step daughter menstrual blood? She admitted and said ‘yes’ and that she had contacted a friend who advised her to give the teenager blood so she could become mad. She asked for forgiveness from the husband and the council.” stated Namwejje.

Rogers Sseguya, the Mukono district police commander, says they’ve handed over the matter to the kid and household safety unit, which can also be making certain ample care for {the teenager} to recuperate psychologically from this trauma.
