According to reports, Anyango has been living with Tobias Ouma of Natongo village in the Buhehe Sub-county. Their bond soured, and their argument turned violent. As a result, Anyango went back to her family’s residence in the village of Luhalali. She tried to toss the baby in a pit toilet out of frustration, but the other residents and neighbors stopped her. She later vanished along with the infant, who was discovered buried nearby a swamp in the same area, according to Mr. Mugwe.
The baby’s body was found in the marsh, according to the police spokesman, and was then transferred to Busia Municipal Health Center IV for an autopsy as further investigation was conducted.
According to Mr. Mugwe, the baby’s autopsy results showed that it died.
