The police have detained a housemaid who was trying to sell her boss’s three-year-old child for Sh3 million.
The suspect has been identified as Agnes Namugabo, who is currently in custody at the Jinja central police station.
On Friday evening, Namugabo took the child from the military barracks in Bombo and vanished before turning off her known mobile phone numbers.
According to James Mubi, the Kiira Regional police spokesperson, police were tipped by Namugabo’s boss and immediately mounted a search for the housemaid and the minor.
She was arrested on Saturday from the Mailo-Mbili roundabout while traveling to Kidera Town Council in the Buyende district to deliver the child to waiting buyers.
He said that the suspect, who has confessed to the crime, blamed her boss for the delayed payment.
