Nanny caught beating and stamping on tot for spitting out her food in horrific hidden camera footage
The abuser was caught when the father came home to find his 2 year old daughter covered in bruises and reviewed footage from a hidden camera
This shocking image shows a housekeeper subjecting a two-year-old child to a horrific beating after she spat her food out on to the floor.
It is taken from a video, captured on a hidden CCTV camera in Nakawa, Uganda, and reveals how the nanny loses her temper with the toddler and becomes violent.
The Mirror has seen the full video but has chosen not to use it as it is so distressing.
The 22-year-old nanny was identified by Ugandan press as Jolly Tumuhiirwe. She was filmed in trying to feed the child – then severely hitting her twice after she coughs out food.
Tumuhiirwe appears to shout: “You’re crying. Stop!”
Later, the pair are watching TV on the sofa when the young victim vomits over the floor and furniture – and is immediately thrown to the ground.
While the baby screams, Tumuhiirwe appears to hit her with a household item.
She then stands on the child’s back before kicking her so hard she flies across the floor.
The tot groans in pain as she is viciously stamped on four times. Her cries are then ear-splitting as she is dragged by one arm, off to another room.
The child’s father returned home to find his daughter covered in bruises.
According to reports, after reviewing the CCTV footage, he attacked Tumuhiirwe and was later arrested by police.
Thankfully, the toddler survived her horrendous ordeal.
“We took her to the hospital for medical checkup and she is ok,” her mother told the Daily Monitor.
“We will be returning to the hospital next week.”
Police chief spokesman CP Fred Enanga confirmed Tumuhiirwe was charged under the ‘anti-torture act’ at Nakawa Court.
If convicted of ‘systematic beating’, she faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in jail.
But Enanga told africanspotlight.com that police are contemplating on revising the charge and upgrading it to attempted murder.
Tumuhiirwe will appear in court on December 8 and is currently in Luzira Prison in Kampala.
