Ugandan maid pleads guilty to beating the Toddler
« on: December 08, 2014, 11:54:37 AM »
A maid in Uganda who was secretly filmed beating and kicking a toddler has pleaded guilty to child abuse.

Jolly Tumuhirwe, 22, was charged in court with the torture of a girl of 18 months. A video of the assault caused outrage when it was posted online.

The child's father, Eric Kamanzi, had installed a camera in his home after noticing his daughter was bruised and limping.

Ms Tumuhirwe asked the court, the parents and Ugandans to forgive her.

The graphic footage, which is taken from a camera hidden in the corner of the living room, shows Ms Tumuhirwe hitting the child when she resists feeding and then throwing her to the floor, beating her with a torch before stepping on her and kicking her.

The Ugandan maid who was secretly filmed beating, kicking and stamping on an 18 months old baby has been sentenced to 4 years in prison for assault on a child.

22 year old Jolly Tumuhiirwe was sentenced this morning December 14th in a Kampala high court after pleading guilty to the crime of assault last week.

The court dropped charges of torture which would have given her at least 10 years in prison. 4 years is good enough. Lesson learnt. Justice served!
