By John Aine
Police in Mbarara is hunting for a student of University of science and technology (MUST) for allegedly dumping her one week old toddler.
Phionah Kanzira; a student pursuing Bachelors Degree in planning and Economic Development hails from Kazo Kiruhura .
It is alleged that last week Kanzira gave birth to a baby boy but after realizing that she would not manage to look after the kid on top of being a student, she secretly dumped the kid at the home of late Francis Mucunguzi in Nyakayojo Rwampara.
Before his death, Mucunguzi is alleged to have been in an affair with Kanzira that resulted into unwanted pregnancy.
The following morning, when the relatives of late Mucunguzi woke up, they found the toddler on the veranda and went to Mbarara regional referral hospital to check whether they was a missing child and finally they went to police where they recorded a statement on reference number SD.REF 79/28/06/2017.
According to Dinavence Kyomugisha the sister to the deceased, after discovering the toddler, they suspected Phionah whom they used to see her pregnant.
As Phiona’s phone number was not available, they called her father’s line,who is a resident of Kazo in Kiruhura ,but he denied having any information about Phiona’s whereabouts.
