Police in Uganda have arrested a father from the Mukono District who allegedly beat his daughter to death for eating his food.
The man, Isma Ssesangahe is reported to have been outraged after finding out that his food packed from a party had been eaten by his children.
He briefly went out of the house and returned around 9pm local time on Sunday.
Out of anger he assaulted his own children, two other boys and the deceased.
Ssesanga was arrested by the police after his 10-year-old daughter, died on Sunday night following the ordeal.
Police spokesperson ASP Luke Owoyesigyire was quoted by the Daily Monitor to have said that the suspect first beat up his two sons before pouncing on the deceased.
But the suspect according to the police claimed his daughter died trying to run away from being beaten although residents narrated a different story.
Police say investigations are still ongoing while the suspect remains in detention.
