Greater Bushenyi police Spokesperson SP Martial Tumusiime is in great trouble for neglecting a child he produced with a suspect.
Phoebe Katusiime 31 a daughter of late Benon Kirabo and Lillian Kyarimpa of Katanda village, Katanda sub-county Rubirizi district accuses Tumusiime of impregnating her with a baby boy who is currently 2 years.
Katusiime narrated that Tumusiime found her at Kizinda police station where she was battling charges of child theft and promised to help her with her case in a short time.
The vulnerable woman who has spent four at the RDC’s office told the media that SP Tumusiime left her 2000 shillings for transport and when she reached Bushenyi police, he persuaded her to sleep at his home for a week as they sort out her case.
Katusiime later found out she had got pregnant for the police boss and she alleges that when she told him, he started ignoring her and warned her to never tell him about her pregnancy again.
Katusiime approached the Bushenyi probation officer who sent her to the office of the RDC where she got little money to buy food for her baby.
She is appealing to well-wishers to give her support in form of food, shelter and clothes to ensure her baby grows.
According to Bushenyi Resident District Commissioner Jane Asiimwe Muhindo, she tried to reach Tumusiime through his phone to settle the issue, and the two decided that he should send 50.000 every month to take care of the child but he still refused.
While addressing journalists in her office, RDC noted that she tried to talk and guide Tumusiime over the issue but still he refused to comprehend and therefore she had to address the issue to media.
According to Tumusiime, he can only afford 30.000 which the mother says is not enough to take care of the baby.
The police case of child neglect under SD: 24/31/03/2022 has been slapped against Tumusiime and the investigations are ongoing.
