A 28 year-old woman named Rose Musiya has been arrested by the Kiira region police for the alleged murder of her two children. The tragic event took place in Buwagi cell, located in the Northern Division of Jinja City, Uganda.
The allegations surrounding this case are deeply disturbing, as it is believed that Musiya may have taken the lives of her own children as part of a ritual sacrifice. Shockingly, one of the children was reportedly buried within their own home.
The children’s father, Magada Kyagulanyi, a casual laborer hailing from Bukunjja in Buikwe district, returned home on a fateful Sunday only to be informed by Musiya that their children had been missing for the past two days. This revelation left him in a state of shock and disbelief.
As the police arrived at their residence, Musiya initially feigned possession by malevolent spirits, attempting to evade the grim reality. However, when confronted by the authorities, she ultimately confessed to the harrowing crime, revealing details that left the community in shock and mourning.
Lydia Karemera, the Deputy Resident City Commissioner of Jinja North, has confirmed that detectives have conducted an examination of the crime scene to gather evidence and gain insights into the circumstances of this heartbreaking incident. The investigation is ongoing, and additional information is expected to emerge as authorities work to piece together the full extent of this tragedy.
In addition to the criminal investigation, Rose Musiya is set to undergo a mental health evaluation, as her actions have raised questions about her psychological well being. This tragedy has sent shockwaves through the community, and its emotional toll is immeasurable, prompting a need for a comprehensive examination of the factors that led to this deeply distressing event.
