A 14 year old boy who was burnt by his Boss while at work home in Kitojo village Kitojo parish in Bwongyera Sub County in Kajara County over misunderstanding is rotting away in a clinic.
It alleged that Benson Nuwandinda 14 year old boy sustained wounds when he was working as casual laborer but he was neglected to rot in the hands of his parents who are not able to seek good medication for him.
It is said that Nuwandinda six month ago was a house help in George Kananuraâ€™s family in Kyamuntu Nyamunuuka town council but after left to get back to school.
Nuwandinda said things did not go well so he decided to go back to but little did he know that Kananuraâ€™s clothes had gotten lost.
It is alleged that a 70-year-old man burnt a 14-year-old boy over theft of clothes in his house at the time when he left the work.
The victim noted that when Kananura saw him coming back he made an alarm calling his sons who came and asked him to explain why he had stolen the clothes.
Nuwandida denied the allegations but Kananura insisted and told the sons to tie him and hung him at the entrance of their kitchen and burn dry banana leaves under where he was hung and the fire flames burn him on the buttocks and legs.
Nuwandida is now rotting in Devine Mercy clinic located in Rwashamaire Town council, Kajara Ntungamo as doctors try to bring back his life.
The mother to the victim Ms Mollen Katushabe said that her child went missing only to find him dumped at the entrance Rwashamire health Centre IV two weeks ago.
She sought the intervention of the probation officer Benon Mugume but in vain.
Dr. Joseph Twebaze Devine Mercy clinic Rwashamaire said that the victim was admitted in a critical condition but is improving slowly.
When contacted, George Kananura admitted to the torture but said that he had agreed with the parents to end the matter amicably.
