Joseph Ssebowa Mwanje, the Buganda Region FUFA delegate is in trouble for torturing 15-year-old Jamir Tebasasira. Mwanje was picked up by police for beating and burning Tebasasira with a flat iron when he accidently ended up at his residency mid last month.


According to information obtained by URN, Tebasasira traveled from Kayunga district to pick up school fees from his father Robert Ssebowa, a taxi driver in Lugazi town.


He asked a boda boda rider to take him to his father, Robert Ssebowa's home, but the rider mistakenly dropped him at Mwanje's residence. Tebasasira says Mwanje returned at midnight and he realized he wasn't the person he was looking for and told him.


He says Mwanje advised him to spend the night, saying it was late but woke up at around 1am and started burning him with a flat iron while beating him up, saying he was a thief pretending to be lost.
