The Inspector General of Police (IGP) has ordered for the registration of all the maids countrywide following the incident in which a one-year-old was tortured by a childminder.
The IGP held a press briefing on Monday at the police headquarters in Naguru. In attendance was Arnella, the child who was tortured together with her parents, Eric and Angella. Apparently, the parents were invited by the IGP to clear rumours that Arnella who was abused by Jolly Tumuhirwe, (22), had died from injuries sustained.
The incident happened on November 13, 2014 when the child's father, Eric Kamanzi saw his daughter being tortured by a househelper from a privately recorded spy cam, he rushed home to rescue the little girl. He shared the video with close friends who later leaked it on facebook. In just four days, the video has over 21 million views. More of that here; Nanny Beats Up Child to Near Death
During the press conference with the IGP, other cases were cited and among them was the case of Kakama, the boy who was killed after a maid connived with the abductors.
In the meeting, it was agreed that maids will from now on have certificates of good conduct before being employed. The IGP added that to get a maid, you must also have a police letter from where the maid is coming from.
Meanwhile, police has confirmed that Jolly Tumuhiirwe's charge sheet has been amended to attempted murder which attracts a maximum sentence of life imprisonment on conviction. She is currently at Luzira prison and will be produced on December 08, 2014 at Nakawa Magistrates Court.
