Police in the Kalangala archipelago have foiled a ritual murder of a baby which was being mooted by a woman and her lover after she cruelly murdered the mother of one-month-old infant.
Anita Nakanyike aged 37 allegedly kidnapped the baby from Wakiso Village Nama Sub County in Mukono District after strangling Caroline Nakiguli, the mother of the kidnapped baby.
After allegedly killing Nakiguli in Mukono, Nakanyike hired a bodaboda that took her fall the way to Entebbe from where she sailed to Mazinga Islands.
Its alleged that Anita's lover, still only known by one name Ssentongo, has been demanding form her a baby and in a phone call, agreed to send transport to Anita to bring the baby.
Nakanyike who boarded a special fish container boat from Greenfield in Entebbe to Miyana in Mazinga was arrested yesterday at 3pm.
Anita was arrested from Mityana Landing Site, Mazinga Sub County of Kalangala District. She was caught red handed feeding the baby milk in mineral water bottle
According to Kakuuta Rodger, the OC Mazinga Police post, Anita and Ssentongo had a hidden mission of sacrificing the baby.
In our interview with Nakanyike, it transpires that the lovers had hatched the plan to kidnap the baby together. This contradicts what Nakanyike had been telling a neighbour that she was looking for a baby to decieve her lover whom she had been decieving that she was pregnant for a while.

"We have resorted to transport the suspects and child to Kalangala Central Police Station since our wooden cells can not host such a high criminal suspect for long" he said.
