Mp charged with child neglect

A woman has dragged the Bugwe North Member of Parliament, Gideon Onyango to Court for alleged child neglect. Juliana Ayinembabazi, a resident of Bweyogere accuses the legislator of failing to provide for their one and half year old child.

The matter came up before the Mukono grade one magistrate Pamela Bomukama on Tuesday. However, Bomukama referred the matter to the Busia Magistrate court where the same matter was filed in July this year.

She also argued that it would be better to hear the matter in Busia where the MP hails from. According to Ayinembabazi, she started dating the legislator in 2013. She explains that Onyango rented for her an apartment in the city suburbs of Bweyogere at Shillings 400,000 each month and promised her a lot of things.

She however, says matters turned for the worse in 2017 when she conceived. According to Ayinembabazi, Onyango first denied the pregnancy but changed later when the child was born.

According to Ayinembabazi, she got back the child at Central Police Station in Kampala after police issued several summons to the legislator. She however, says the legislator has denied her child support since then.

She now wants Court to compel the legislator to provide for her child. Onyango has not yet commented since he neither picked nor returned calls from our reporter on his mobile phone.
