[Facebook video] Babysitter beats, kicks and stands on baby [Uganda]

A very shocking video has been circulating Facebook. The video shows how a babysitter from Uganda abuses a baby. The babysitter had been hired by the parents to look after the baby.

It seems that the parents did not trust the babysitter; the parents planted a hidden camera in the living room.

Once the parents got back and had viewed the tape – they were outraged. The father of the baby had beaten the babysitter in such a hard way that she ended up in a wheelchair and she is forced to get her nutrition’s via feeding tubes.

The babysitter was arrested and was taken to the Luzira Prison in Kampala to await her case to be reviewed.

The prison is next to a military complex which holds the barracks.
