Ugandan mother handed 18-month jail term for torturing daughter
A Ugandan court has handed an eighteen-month sentence to a woman who was caught on camera assaulting her two-year-old daughter.
Dorothy Nabulime was slapped with the jail term after pleading guilty to assault.
“She will spend 18 months in jail after pleading guilty to two counts of cruel inhuman degrading treatment and assault occasioning actual bodily harm to her two-year-old daughter,” a statement by the Uganda Police indicated.
Nabulime was captured on video beating her daughter mercilessly.
With the baby’s cries falling on deaf ears, she was seen and heard cursing while beating the young one on the head, shoulders, back, hands, and legs more than 20 times in one minute.
The young girl was naked at the time she received the beating as though preparing for a bath but this did not stop her mother from torturing her.
Nabulime’s neighbours told the media she had the habit of punishing her children.
The convict explained that her actions were driven by anger.
