Vicky Abiria, a Ugandan household servant, was accused of feeding her boss’s baby with her urine.
On Friday, December 11, the Kira Division Court sentenced Abiria to four years imprisonment.
Hope Chica, the baby’s mother told the police that after discovering that Abira had held the baby’s bottle filled with urine in her bedroom, she got suspicious.
Upon questioning, she admitted to giving her urine to the boy.
“I found my baby’s urine-filled bottle, and when I asked her, she confessed that she was feeding her urine to my baby,” she said.
Chica added: “The doctors figured out that my baby had syphilis when I took my daughter to the hospital. I’m now trying to heal my child and make sure she doesn’t have any complications.”
She further added that on social media and television she still saw these kinds of acts and didn’t really believe that they were valid.
I’ve always heard that house helps do these kinds of things, I’m even afraid of maids now that it’s happened to my child. I never want to hire one I’ve always treated this girl well but I don’t know why,” she said, “she wanted to do such a thing.
On Thursday, December 10, Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) spokesman Patrick Onyango announced that Abira had been arrested and charged with spreading dangerous diseases after tests on the child showed that she had been infected with a urinary tract infection.
