According to reports, Nabirye prepared maize meal (posho) on Wednesday afternoon, but when she returned home, she discovered that Makuube had eaten the remaining food without first seeking her permission.
Nabirye brutally beat Makuube until he died, then wrapped his lifeless body in clean bedsheets and hid it under her bed.
Makuube’s four-year-old brother, whose name has been withheld, informed the neighbor about what occurred during the night.
After discovering Makuube’s lifeless body, a team of local leaders led by the area L.C.1 chairperson, Hamza Zirabamuzale, inspected the house and notified police authorities.
Nabirye went into hiding in the Magada trading center in the Mayuge district, where she was apprehended by police on Thursday morning.
According to Zirabamuzale, such acts of excessive violence against children are exacerbated by the area’s high poverty and unemployment rates.
According to Zirabamuzale, several people in the area are struggling to provide for their families, and as a result of their frustrations, some of them have resorted to violence against both their children and spouses.
