The child’s body was found on the morning of Wednesday, January 17, 2024, in Kadasumbwa Village, Ntunga Cell, Mwulire Sector.
According to sources, the child was with his mother at the charcoal store in Ntunga station two days ago. While the mother was attending to clients, the child went missing, claiming that he had gone home. A search was conducted, and there were suspicions of a possible abduction. However, it has now been discovered that the child was strangled with a bag of charcoal, resulting in his tragic death.
In response to this heartbreaking incident, Zamu Daniel, the Executive Secretary of Mwulire Sector, emphasized the importance of parents sending their young children, aged three and above, to kindergartens. By doing so, children can benefit from the guidance of teachers while their parents can fulfill their responsibilities without constantly having to manage their children’s needs.
Furthermore, parents are advised to closely monitor their children whenever they are in their care, as the safety and well-being of a child are of utmost importance.
Currently, the Sector administration is awaiting the involvement of security agencies and medical professionals to determine the cause of the child’s death, specifically if it was a result of the charcoal bag. Once the investigation is complete, the child’s body will be released to the parents for burial.
