Jolly Tumuhiirwe (22), the Ugandan maid who was secretly filmed viciously beating, kicking and stamping on an 18-month-old child has been jailed for four years.
Passing sentence in Kampala on Monday, chief magistrate Lillian Buchan said what Tumuhiirwe had committed was an “unjustifiable and inexcusable” crime.
Claims by the maid that the unwarranted attack was in revenge after the child’s mother beat her were dismissed by the court.
The child’s father, Eric Kamanzi, installed cameras in his home after noticing signs of abuse on the toddler.
