A man has been jailed for three years over the aggravated torture of his 4-year-old child.   

Faizal Muwanguzi was arrested by Local Council leaders of Bwotasimbi, Buloba in Wakiso District for torturing his two sons.   

When he was arraigned before the Magistrates Court at Bujjuko in Mpigi District, Muwanguzi pleaded guilty to one case and denied the second case.

On Thursday, the Grade One Magistrate, Isaac Imoran Kintu sentenced Muwanguzi saying that he confessed on his own plea of guilt and did not waste Court’s time.     According to the magistrate, interaction with the child revealed that Muwanguzi regularly tortured the boy which confirmed his brutality.
