Monster maid freed Jolly Tumuhiirwe, the maid who was captured on camera brutally beating a toddler in 2014 and sentenced to Luzira, has been released today after completing her four year jail term, over assault and causing body harm.
Tumuhiirwe, 22, was filmed beating, kicking and stamping on the 18-month-old child.
While in court, Tumuhiirwe said the attack was revenge after she was beaten by the child’s mother.
The mother denied beating her. Earlier charges of torture were dropped.
The video footage, which prompted the case, came from a camera the child’s father, Eric Kamanzi, had installed in his home after noticing his daughter was bruised and limping.
He reported the abuse to police last month and circulated the video online to family members. The footage was later shared more widely, provoking horror and upset internationally.
