For allegedly abusing her 15-year-old friend Pretty Nicole, whom she claimed of falling in love with her boyfriend, one Derrick Lwanga, a Tanzanian girl has been remanded to Luzira Prison in Uganda.
According to LIB, Queen Kaftah, 18, and several other girls who are still at large beat up the minor by slapping, kicking, and dragging her about the house’s floor.
On January 17, 2023, Kaftah was charged with aggravating torture of her friend Pretty Nicole and causing great bodily harm in violation of sections 2 (1) (b) and 5 (a) (h) (j) (k) of the Prevention of Prohibition of Torture Act 2012. She was arraigned before Kira magistrate’s Court in Kampala.
She was arrested last week after a video recording, which showed them torturing the teenage girl, went viral on social media.
Prosecution states that Kaftah and others still at large on January 8, 2023 in Nsasa Kira Municipality in Wakiso District inflicted injuries on the juvenile, causing her grievous harm on accusations that she fell in love with her (Kaftah) boyfriend, Lwanga.
Kaftah was remanded to Luzira prison until January 31, 2023 when she’ll return to court for further mention of the case.
