A merciless hearted woman from Bweyogerere Kigandaazi zone killed a step son and secretly buried the Body.
A one Yvonne Oyo Vena aged 28 is the woman in question who reportedly hit her step son, a 9-years-old Zion Ssendagire with a stool on the head that instantly claimed his life.
According to close sources, Yvonne didn’t hesitate to alarm the neighbors about what she had done but with the assist of a close friend, they rushed the boy to the hospital identified as Gwatiro in Bweyogerere where the doctor declined to offer the two any professional help since Zion had already passed on.
This is where the puzzled Yvonne decided to wrap the body and transported it to her husband’s village in Ziroobwe – Kaleerwe, Luweero District for burial without anyone’s knowledge.
The mother of the deceased, Constance Kisaka was only let to learn about the death of her beloved son when the burrial was already done.
Constance explains that she tried to search for her son every where but failed and all the efforts of contacting her husband and also father to the deceased, Henry Kasirye, fell on a barren ground since he had switched off his known contacts.
“I tried to search very where for my son but failed miserably …. even my husband’s contacts that I previously had were all switched off until when he called me to bury my son…. ”
Constance continues to reveal that she was told that her son had succumbed to Malaria till when Police intervened in the matters and explained every thing that had happened concerning Zion’s death.
“When I asked him what he had died of, he simply told me it was due to severe malaria. I was only able to know the truth when the police came and explained the circumstances surrounding his death.” Zion’s biological mother lamented.
It was also reported that as the burial arrangements were ongoing, announcements were passed on barring anyone from viewing the whole body but only the face.
However, when ASP Karim Magid, the head of Bweyogerere Polic received reliable information about the murder, he intervened his men to follow the suspect to Ziroobwe where they found the burial underway. This is where Police decided to halt it until a postmortem is done.
The postmortem confirmed that the victim was tortured as they discovered serious injuries on the head, nose, stomach, chest and strokes of canes on the entire body. This prompted Police to make a search at Kasirye’s from where they recovered Zion’s clothes stained with blood and the murder weapon, a stool.
Henry Kasirye and his wife, Oyo Vena Yvonne have been arrested and are now under police custody.
