Jolly Tumuhirwe, the woman from hell maid who mercilessly beat a child that is said to be 18 month old to near death for throwing up on the floor because she was unwell is now facing attempted murder charges as it has been upgraded from torture under Section 41 of the Anti-Torture Act.
Confirming the charges have been upgraded to attempted murder, the police spokesman, Mr Fred Enanga in a press statement said: “The charge against her has been amended to attempted murder upon re-perusal by the Resident State Attorney and the pending lines of inquiry in advanced stages.” He continued: “The maid admitted to partly hitting the infant with a torch, a process that was captured in the video clip. She was further subjected to medical tests and established to be a person of sound mind.”
Mr Enanga used the opportunity to warn parents to be very cautious about the people they leave their children in care of saying they could be traced to “psychological problems suffered by maids and helpers”
Baby Arnella Kamanzi and her parents, Mr Eric Kamanzi and wife were at the police headquarter (photo above) today where they were assured their daughter will be getting justice for the gruesome abuse that was meted on her by the woman from hell babysitter that taking care of her.
“Given the magnitude of torture meted out on their child, anybody would have picked the nearest object and killed the maid but he followed the law. We are also forwarding to Parliament the 2014 Children Amendment Act to strengthen the law on child abuse,” Ms Mary Karooro Okurut, the Minister of Gender, Labour and Social Development said yesterday while commending the restraint of Arnella’s parents from committing murder when they watched the level of abused their daughter went through.
Before the viral video incident, Jolly Tumuhirwe who the family said has only worked with them for about 26 months had been abusing their daughter. And according to them, each time they ask Tumuhirwe (the woman from hell) why the child was limping or have bruises, she will pretend she knows nothing about it. It was then the family decided to install security cameras in the house to investigate what was going on with their child.
“Whenever we returned home we would find the house clean, she would bathe the children, feed them and take them to bed. Our first born goes to school so no one could tell us the source of Arnella’s bruises. That is when we installed CCTV cameras in the house,” Mbabazi, the child’s mother said.
When the Daily Monitor asked the mother of two if she’ll hire another maid after this shocking incident, she is reported to have been first speechless before saying: “It is sad. I can’t describe how I feel. We shared the video on social media so that other parents can learn from it,” she says, adding, “By the grace of God, baby Arnella is fine. She got medication and recovered. She is well and God protected her, we are grateful.”
The monster babysitter, Jolly Tumuhirwe is currently being remanded in Luzira prison and will re-appear in court on the 8th of December 2014. Below are photos of the woman from hell maid torturing the little girl.
