‘I am Sorry’- The Nanny Who Assaulted The Ugandan Baby Asks For Forgiveness

by WDN


The nanny, Jolly Tumuhiirwe, who beat the 18 month old baby to near death asked for forgiveness and she told Ugandaonline.net why she did it.


Arnella Kamanzi, the 18-month-old baby who was tortured by a maid early this month was yesterday admitted at the pediatric section in Mulago Hospital for further medical examinations. “The baby was brought here for examinations and a number of tests will be done to establish whether she is in good health,” confirmed a source at the national referral hospital.

Jolly Tumuhiirwe, the maid who is the main actress in the ‘horror movie’ has been charged with attempted murder and she is due to appear in court on Dec. 08, 2014. Experts are also looking at the video to be sure it was not doctored.

Meanwhile, speaking from Luzira prison, Jolly Tumuhiirwe has asked the ‘world’ to forgive her for what she did….”My dad in Kabale was very sick and yet my mom did not have any money. I asked my bosses for some money to send to my dad but they told me that I hadn’t made a month yet and my father was dying, so it kept on haunting me.”

“That is the more reason I referred the anger to the baby but I’m sorry. But that madam (Arnella’s mom) is not easy. She used to say that I steal money from the clothes and Eric’s wallet, I eat the babies food…and yet I can’t eat the food, I’m not a baby, those were all lies, so, I was also not happy from my heart.”

“I feel guilty..ok when I was doing it I thought I was disciplining the baby because also the mother sometimes slaps her, I also saw from the mom. The torch I used was small and it’s not hard. I think, I will never do it again”

Jolly’s experience of Prison

“It’s not good at all even my fellow prisoners don’t want to associate with me, they want to beat me up. In fact they were saying that I should join them in their rooms, nobody likes me and I’m feeling bad I will never do it again, I ask the world to forgive me and also tell the bosses who have maids to treat them well.”

May God help us all to forgive so that we may be forgiven. ..but our hearts are still bleeding wat she did was heartless. May God deal with her.

Nene Kaluta November 29, 2014 - 12:15 am

Nigga stay in the prison you have to learn your lesson. If I were you I could just fight with the person who refuse to give me money , not the baby. That baby didn’t deserve what you did to her. My dear enjoy the hell, may you stay in prison I hope they will treat you like a Slave.

carine November 29, 2014 - 4:18 am

Is she sorry for what she did or sorry that she was caught on camera? Why didn’t she quit the job? The child is not to blame for her financial troubles or the mother’s behaviour. No one should mistreat a child, nothing can justify what she did. The world can and will hopefully forgive her but she deserves a punishment.

Lilian November 29, 2014 - 5:04 am

She asks for forgiveness and still lie. how can she say that she doesn’t steal money and doesn’t eat the baby food when the video showed her eating it just before the baby started throwing up. I have always known her punishment lies in prison with her fellow inmates. I forgive you, but I don’t know if I can easily forgive had that baby been mine. I might be in jail by now for murder. I pray God helps us all to forgive as he forgives us.

Mary November 29, 2014 - 6:50 am

Shut your mouth you murderer.Disappear from planet earth.My heart goes out to the little angel and to the parents.

Tess November 29, 2014 - 7:43 am

Liz Mba November 29, 2014 - 8:30 am

Anna November 29, 2014 - 8:54 am

So what did the child do to you?

Chima November 29, 2014 - 9:05 am

Arrant Nonsense. She even has the guts to make excuses huh? She is so unrepentant! The only forgiveness she can get is a life sentence, otherwise death by hanging would have been the right punishment she deserves. A lesson to the wicked out there.

dayhollar November 29, 2014 - 9:11 am

Dis is a wicked world,no one 2 trust again.dis nanny shud go 2 jail nd learn her lesson,she has gone a wide way by treating dat inocent girl badly,nd I believe dis is nt her first time of doing dis 2 her,wat of where dat is no hidden camera,she beat a baby up 2 d point on death on in d name of revenge,she must not live among living

Chicco Chimpikiso November 29, 2014 - 9:18 am

From look of how she treated that innocent girl I don’t think this nanny deserves forgiveness, she must be punished so as a lesson to others, only that may be instead of life in prison sentence she should be given at least reasonable years in prison with hard labour. She is a killer, I were a parent to the girl could forgive her but forget, but let Judiciary do their job.

Adell Di Maria November 29, 2014 - 9:25 am

The deed is done and already reported. The parents of the baby can forgive her, the world might forgive her, God can have mercy on her if she genuinely begs for mercy… But let the law of the land which the Bible also supports take its course.
If the penalty is death by hanging, firing squad or imprisonment for years or life, so be it.
I really can’t forgive her though cos I cried seeing what that little angel went through.

affia jane November 29, 2014 - 9:44 am

Am short of words! If Jolly herself was d mother of ds little girl, I’m still wondering what she would have done to d nanny!

affia jane November 29, 2014 - 9:47 am

Am short of words! If Jolly herself was d mother of ds little girl, I’m still wondering what she would have done to d nanny if she could transfer her evil ‘anger’ to an innocent child in ds manner.

rale November 29, 2014 - 9:53 am

that nanny is evil, she has no justification for her action, and she is talking trash about the parent, if someone hurt my child or sister kids like that I can kill someone

Clarientia November 29, 2014 - 10:36 am

leya phir November 29, 2014 - 8:56 pm

nurses go to work frustrated because they dnt gt paid well by the government on top of that they have family problems too..but do they kill people because they are frustrated…no they just strike or take other types of action.not getting paid isn’t a good excuse to treat a child like that…she needs to be punished

Dr TJ December 1, 2014 - 2:53 am

You are forgiven, but we won’t forget. Remember those who live bythe sword , die by the sword. Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you…….ltrouble awaits you right at the corner. Repent and be saved. But e punished. Now who will take care of your parents. Your inmates are going to pounce on you, how your boss beat you is goin to be better.

Sisanda December 1, 2014 - 4:16 am

The fact that the nanny is in jail and not dead and buried shows how merciful those parents are,I was horrified by that video,couldn’t finish it,I thought it was a social media prank,and to learn that it was real made me sick,I deleted it,to top it all she sounds not remorseful at all,there is no reason to murder an innocent angel no matter how stressed you are,luckily that child is still young she won’t have “emotional scars” when older.Justice must prevail upon the so called nanny,no nanny is like that,that is a killer.

revelvision December 1, 2014 - 8:28 am

IDIOT!!!, We may forgive you after you serve consecutive life sentences for each blow you dealt on the poor baby. Witch of bitch!!!

Feyi December 1, 2014 - 3:38 pm

God! So u still have mouth to talk? UA still raising ur stupid shoulder? Pls let d judge do unto her exactly what she did to DAT little princess,lets feed her with 20plates of serious hot pepper soup,throw her down from high table with her forehead smack d floor and use touch light to beat her stupid button many times naked,matching her like locus beans then drag her to bathroom and do d second round beating for her. I blamed myself for showing d video to my sister DAT just gave bath bcos she was shocked to d point DAT,she wanted to faint. Let her rot in jail pls. No bail,np visiting with hard labour

Edem Netsey December 2, 2014 - 2:05 am

I gladly forgive her, for Jesus first forgave us all for greater evil we do in the secret.
Thank you Jesus.

Obi December 2, 2014 - 8:57 am

We shouldn’t be here listening to her stinking excuses. She and the Lawyer who put those lies in her mouth deserve nothing but shameful death. How can you treat a baby with so much cruelty! That girl is worse than the devil. Haba!!
You and whoever would cover you shall rot in Hell!!!

Celeste December 4, 2014 - 3:09 am

The fact that she has all those excuses just makes her apology full of shit!!! If she really was having such a tough time with her parents why didn’t she leave. By the way I sympathize with her predicament at the time but there is no way in hell that that’s can be an excuse, no way. She is a grown ass woman and can leave, or whatever she wants. That poor child had nothing to do with any of that, She could have killed that child. And the poor child is probably now psychologically scarred. Babies r fragile. NOOOOOO!! I am just so angry at this issue. I don’t even have kids but no! No! No!

There is absolutely no excuse for what she did. Her using her bad times as the reason for what she did makes me so much angrier. Makes me feel as though they are just claims. She’s not the only person in the world that goes through tough times. Total bull! Should we all start being inhumane depending on what we are going through in our personal lives? How chaotic do u think the world would be? mxiiiieeew

steve December 4, 2014 - 2:31 pm

she must rot in jail

patrick December 7, 2014 - 5:37 am

Ok we forgive you but stay in jail for ever we don’t need people like you in society.

All so remember if it was my child I don’t think will send you to jail .kill you befor even the police come. Stupid human being

Nana December 10, 2014 - 3:19 am

Jail her she is liar.Please don’t mind that girl Jail her .

Nana December 10, 2014 - 3:21 am
