A Tanzanian woman has been remanded to Luzira Prison in Uganda for allegedly torturing a Ugandan juvenile whom she accused of falling in love with her boyfriend.
Queen Kaftah,18, was on Tuesday arraigned before Kira magistrate’s Court in Kampala and charged with aggregated torture of her 15-year-old friend and inflicting grievous bodily harm contrary to section 2 (1) (b) and 5 (a) (h) (j) (k) of the Prevention of Prohibition of Torture Act 2012.
Kafutah and a group of other women still at large accused the teenage friend of falling in love with one Derrick Lwanga.
She was arrested last week after a video recording that showed them torturing the teenage girl went viral on social media.
Prosecution states that Kaftah and others still at large on January 8, 2023, in Nsasa Kira Municipality in Wakiso District inflicted injuries on the juvenile (names withheld because she’s a minor), aged 15, causing her grievous harm on accusations that she fell in love with her (Kaftah) boyfriend, Lwanga.
Kaftah was remanded to Luzira prison until January 31, 2023, when she’ll return to court for further mention of the case.
