The proprietor of Falitha Night and Day Care has been charged with accidentally causing the death of a four-year-old who was in her care and custody.
Carol Mirembe appeared on Monday before Makindye Magistrate court where she was formally charged.
According to the prosecution, on February 5th, 2019 Mirembe caused the death of Natasha Tendo whose mother left the country to look for greener Pastures thereby entrusting the child with the accused since 2017.
It is alleged that Mirembe hit Tendo on the wall and later put her to sleep in her bed where her body was found lying with blood which had leaked from her injured head to other children she slept with.
But Mirembe who appeared in Court carrying her own baby denied Manslaughter charges and asked court Presided over by chief magistrate Prossy Katushabe to release her on bail.
The magistrate has then set Mirembe’s bail at 1.5 million shillings after finding the two sureties she has presented to be substantial enough to compel her to attend the trial
Magistrate Katushabe has further set Mirembe’s case for hearing on March 7th, 2019 after state prosecutor Jackie Okao informed the court that inquiries are complete.
However, Police says Tendo’s body is still stuck at the KCCA Mortuary almost three weeks after her death with nobody claiming it
