DP Women League Secretary Convicted For Torture.

The Democratic Party Youth Chairperson, Franchesca Amony has been convicted for torturing her maid.
Court presided over by Gulu Chief Magistrate, Francis Dawa Matenga on Tuesday found Amony guilty of torturing her 13 year old maid, Flavia Akello on July 28th 2017 from Iriaga East parish in Bardege division an outskirt of Gulu municipality.
The Chief Magistrate told court that Amony`s action contravenes article 219 of the Penal Code Act.
He convicted Amony to one million shillings fine and 500,000 shillings compensation for her victim explaining that the convict accepted to treat her maid of the injuries she suffered.
Amony then paid the money to bank in cash and later walked free.
Amony who is also the Pece division women councilor in Gulu was in 2017 released on a cash bail of UGX 500,000.
The case against Amony intensified after concerned people went to social media protesting her actions of using a flat iron to burn the maid she accused of stealing UGX 60,000.
Photos of the teenager with burns on the upper hand and lower hands also went viral on social media prompting her summoning by police.
