Ugandan Nanny Who Tortured Baby Apologizes & Explains Her Actions

After the video of a Ugandan Nanny torturing a baby went viral on the internet.
The house-girl was charged, arrested & put in jail.
Now in an exclusive interview with a Ugandan media house (
The Nanny who goes by the name Jolly Tumuhiirwe explains her actions:

My dad in Kabale was very sick and yet my mom did not have any money. I asked my bosses for some money to send to my dad but they told me that I hadn’t made a month yet and my father was dying, so it kept on haunting me.
That is the more reason I referred the anger to the baby but I’m sorry. But that madam (Arnella’s mom) is not easy. She used to say that I steal money from the clothes and Eric’s wallet, I eat the babies food…and yet I can’t eat the food, I’m not a baby, those were all lies, so, I was also not happy from my heart.
I feel guilty..ok when I was doing it I thought I was disciplining the baby because also the mother sometimes slaps her, I also saw from the mom. The torch I used was small and it’s not hard. I think, I will never do it again
“It’s not good at all here in prison. Even my fellow prisoners don’t want to associate with me, they want to beat me up. In fact they were saying that I should not join them in their rooms, nobody likes me and I’m feeling bad I will never do it again, I ask the world to forgive me and also tell the bosses who have maids to treat them well.
