Residents of Buyinja village near Dr. Kizza Besigye’s home in Kasangati are in shock after a woman strangled herself on finding out that she was HIV positive.

Jennifer Tumuhereze (35) was found in her rented apartment in Buyinja village hanging by the rope. Neigbours told this website that Jennifer killed herself after she received terrifying news from the doctor that she was HIV positive.

“When Tumuhereze tested positive with HIV, she ran mad and was rushed to Butabika mental hospital. She later returned stable and started taking her medicine,” one of the locals told the Grapevine.

She was later heard asking neighbours from time to time that, “if someone wants to strangle themselves, what do they do?”

Ronald Namugowa (28), the husband to Jennifer said that, “I woke up in the morning and went for work, I left her in the house healthy and fine. Later in the evening when I came back with a pineapple and ‘kikomando’ (Chapati with beans) to surprise her, I was shocked to find her hanging on the rope next to the entrance of our ‘muzigo’.

Kasangati police was alerted and they removed the body from the rope and took it to Mulago for postmortem before taking it to Kabale for burial.

A mother has been convicted of abusing her 3-year-old daughter in Britain’s first successful prosecution for female genital mutilation.

The 37-year-old Ugandan woman was found guilty Friday at London’s Central Criminal Court. The mother isn’t being named to protect her child’s identity,

She claimed her daughter suffered an accidental injury, but jurors concluded the child had been cut deliberately.

Metropolitan Police Detective Chief Inspector Ian Baker said the girl “was subjected to horrific abuse” but made a good recovery.

However, the woman told court the baby “fell on metal and it ripped her private parts” while trying to get a biscuit in August 2017.

Judge Philippa Whipple said a lengthy prison term is in store at the woman’s March 8 sentencing.

Female genital mutilation – intentionally altering or injuring female genital organs for non-medical reasons – has been a crime in Britain since 1985, but this is the first prosecution to result in a conviction.
