A man identified as Joseph Nuwashaba aged 22 years was on September 14 arrested after he was found with human head at parliament premises.
According to the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango, the suspect is a resident of Kizinda Bushenyi-Ishaka municipality in Bushenyi district.
“The suspect was arrested today at 1130hrs by the Police officers manning security at Parliament of the Republic of Uganda, and upon search the suspect was got with a head of a seaming young kid of about 5 to 8 years in a box that was wrapped like a gift,” he noted.
In a related development, Onyango revealed that police in Masaka received a report of murder of unknown seaming kid that was headless (torso) in Kijabweni.
“The two separate body parts are being examined by our medical experts to establish whether they bear the same DNA and upon proof, the suspect will be charged of murder,” said Onyango.
Parliament has been a scene of various bizarre incidents in recent years. Several protesters have in the past dropped pigs and coffins at the Parliament gate reportedly in protest of the extravagance of MPs.
In 2018, a group of youth stormed parliament with a coffin condemning the manner MPs were handling the murder and kidnap of women and children that had hit the country.
The group led by Lutta Ferdinand dropped a coffin at Parliament to show their dissatisfaction and accusing MPs of neglecting the issues affecting the country. The group claimed that Over 20 women and children had been kidnapped for ransom while others were murdered in the period of three months, but parliament was busy discussing politics.
