Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said Vincent Ssekanjako, 40, a casual worker at Temangalo village in Wakiso village is alleged to have murdered three-year-old Muwanguzi Muyige as revenge after separating with the mothers.

“The facts gathered indicate that the suspect was staying with Florence Nakintu  as husband and wife with the stepson. However, on March, 25, they got misunderstandings after the wife established that her husband had stolen a mobile phone, TV and shs100,000 from their house which led to a fight,” Enanga said.

He said that following the fight, the wife left the home with the child and went to stay with her friend at  Temangalo trading centre.

The following day, Ssekanjako went and pleaded with Nakintu to return home and in the process, he went with the stepson after promising to by him soda but disappeared with him.

“The mother got concerned, at around 10pm, after waiting for them in vain. She alerted other members of the community and an immediate search was conducted. The body of the victim was recovered in a room next to their house. The victim was struck to the head by the step father, using a sharp object, killing him instantly. The suspect who is on the run, had mapped out and participated in the brutal kidnapping and murder of the step-son.”

Police said by the time the body was recovered, Ssekanjako was already on the run.

“When such grievous crimes are committed like this, it shows the dangers that vulnerable children still face in our society. We are going to concert our efforts, to track down the suspect and ensure he is brought to face justice. We will not stop until he is arrested,” Enanga said.
