Nanny Who Battered Ugandan Baby Asks For Forgiveness, Explains Why She Did It

The nanny who beat an 18 year old to near death has explained why she did it. Jolly Tumuhiirwe who is presentlyawaiting trial in Luzira prison,told
“My dad in Kabale was very sick and my mom did not have any money. I asked my bosses for somemoney to send to my dad but they told me that I hadn’t made a month yet and my father was dying, so it kept on haunting me. That is the
more reason I referred the anger to the baby but I’m sorry.

But that madam (Arnella’s mom) is not easy. She used to say that I steal money from the clothes andEric’s wallet, I eat the babies food…and yet I can’t eat the food, I’m not a baby, those were all lies, so, I was also not happy from my heart.I feel guilty..ok when I was doing it I thought I was disciplining the baby because also the mother sometimes slaps her, I also saw from the mom. The torch I used was small and it’s not hard. I think, I will never do it again”
When asked about her  experience of Prison she said
“It’s not good at all even my fellow prisoners don’t want to associate with me, they want to beat me up. In fact they were saying that I should join them in their rooms, nobody likes me and I’m feeling bad I will never do it again, I ask the world to forgive me and also tell the bosses who have maids to treat them well.”
