For tonight's Weird Weiner News, we travel to Uganda, where a step mom was arrested for mixing her step-daughter's dinner with a disgusting ingredient!
Police in Mukono, Uganda have arrested a woman accused of forcefully feeding her teenage step daughter food that was mixed with her menstrual blood.
Annet Namata’s husband, Unusu Lungu, told police that he learned about the shocking incident from his neighbours who intervened to save the teenager’s life when they saw her vomiting after the suspect had left to go and trap grasshoppers.
Neighbors asked the teenager what had happened but she couldn’t speak and instead pointed at a plate of food inside the house.
The neighbors notified Unusu after giving the teenager hot water to wash her mouth, garlic and charcoal powder to swallow.
She asked for forgiveness from the husband and the council.
Rogers Sseguya, the Mukono district police commander, says they have handed over the matter to the child and family protection unit, which is also ensuring sufficient care for the teenager to recover psychologically from this trauma.
