John Kabeho, a Rubaare Sub-County District Councillor, shared details of the incident with the Monitor publication.
According to Kabeho, the suspect committed the heinous act while his wife was away from home.
“The suspect was left home with the child while his wife and their child went to church.
When the wife returned from church, her husband claimed to have bought some meat and instructed her to cook it immediately because he was hungry,” explained Mr. Kabeho.
Upon entering the kitchen, the wife made the horrifying discovery of chopped human meat pieces in the pan.
As investigations continue, Councillor Kabeho mentioned that the suspect has a history of mental instability, shedding light on the possible factors contributing to this disturbing incident.
