As global outrage poured, with people condemning the act, little Arnella’s plight earned her many friends around the world who have been asking intermittently for an update on the todller’s health.
The Ugandan police held a press conference yesterday in Kampala, Uganda to explain the current situation of the baby. In an NBS Television video footage, little Arnella is seen in the arms of her mother Angela Kamanzi, while her father Eric Kamanzi sits beside them watching as Director of Operations in Uganda Police, Andrew Felix Kaweesi debriefs pressmen.
Kaweesi who addressed the press in the local language, Luganda, spoke strongly against child abuse and said that they will be screening and issuing certificates of good conduct to all domestic workers and whoever intends to hire a maid should first ensure that they have such a certificate. All this is to prevent any further occurrence of such incidents.
The public was encouraged to report any of such child abuse cases in case they knew of any.
