The Judiciary has called upon all those unhappy about the one year handed to the Stella Namuwonge, a Masaka woman for inserting razor blades into the private parts of her then three weeks old step-daughter to appeal in a higher competent court.
ANPPCAN argues that the one year sentence is not commensurate to the crime committed and the pain suffered by the toddler and the medical costs incurred by the baby's single mother. They describe the sentence as a mockery of Justice adding that deterrent sentences should be given to dissuade offenders.
Stella Namuwonge, the woman accused of mutilating the private parts of her then 3-week old step-daughter, has been found guilty and sentenced to serve one year in prison. The ruling was made by Masaka Grade One Chief Magistrate Mary Ikit.
Kakooza went to tell court that he had been told by Namaganda\'s neighbour Douglas Lwanga that Namuwonge been seen at the home several times threatening to harm Namaganda. Namaganda was never present in the house on those occasions.
Masaka court has summoned a Masaka referral hospital doctor to appear before court and testify in a case of a woman who is accused of mutilating the private parts of her then 3 weeks old step daughter.
