A mother was arrested by police in Kalangala for injuring her son. The incident happened on April 21 at around 6 pm, at Bugala LCI, Kalangala Town Council in Kalangala District, according to police.
Police reveal that Katusiime Maureen, a 30-year-old businesswoman, was angered by the habitual acts of theft by her son, Kabuuka Vincent (13).
It is reported that Katusiime tied up his son before using a panga to inflict injuries on his legs.
“She further used a stick to seriously cane her son,” says police.
Police indicate that it took the intervention of neighbors, who responded and rescued the victim from the acts of torture and abuse.
