A father and his five children were hospitalized in an attempted murder suicide.
Police said that 43-year-old Sam Lubuulwa of Rakai, Uganda, poisoned his five children and cut off his own genitals.
The incident occurred in Kalisizo. The children were identified as Denis, 2, Alice, 4, Patrick, 5, Bulasio, 7, and David, 17.
Lubuulwa had custody of all the children, who were born to three different mothers. Lubuulwa and his children were admitted to the Kalisizo Hospital, where it was determined that the children have been poisoned.
Lubuulwa was placed under arrest and he is under constant police supervision to prevent him from escaping or contacting his children.
Dr. Roseo Muhangi said that the 2-year-old child is still in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), while the rest of the children are recovering steadily.
Lubuulwa, who worked as a security guard for the Nninzi Co-operative Union, said that he had been taking care of his five children after their mothers left them at his home.
Lubuulwa said that he wanted to stop their suffering. His neighbors said that he cut his genitals, believing that his children were dead.
Lubuulwa’s 16-year-old son David, said that his father pinned him down and forced something into his mouth.
Police officer Regina Nansamba said that Lubuulwa, was unconscious and bleeding profusely when they arrived at his home. His children were found in critical condition.
Lubuulwa faces five counts of attempted murder.
