Robinah Nakazibwe, a resident of Bulaga in Wakiso District, has been arrested for allegedly beheading her two-month-old baby girl commonly known as Precious.
Mr Luke Owoyesigyire, the Deputy Kampala metropolitan Police spokesperson, said Nakazibwe used a panga and a knife to kill the baby today morning before attempting to commit suicide.
Bulaga police have since embarked on investigations to unearth whatever could have triggered Nakazibwe to kill her own child.
Nakazibwe was rushed to Family Clinic at Bulaga trading centre where she is nursing wounds she sustained while attempting to commit suicide.
Detectives recovered among other exhibits from the scene of crime; two pangas and one knife all with bloodstains.
