Police in Rukungiri have recovered a body of a 4 year old Precious Akanyihayo one of the two children that were thrown into river Mitano that boarders Rukungiri and Kanungu districts.
The toddlers were on Friday thrown into the river by their mother Catherine Tumuranye a resident of Kifunjo cell, Nyakinengo parish Nyakishenyi Sub County Rukungiri district.
Tumuranye alleges that she was lured into such a regrettable act after her in-laws evicted them from the land where they were surviving. Tumuranye told our reporter that her husband Asaph Muhumuza neglected the family 2 years ago and neither does he provide any support to them.
Akanyihayos body was taken to Rwakabengo Mortuary for postmortem as police continues the search for the second body.
The suspect is currently held at Rukungiri police station as investigations go on.
Police declined to comment on the issue.
