KAMPALA – Kampala Metropolitan Traffic Police Commander Norman Musinga has refused to obey a court order that grants the custody of his three children to their mother with whom he divorced, PML Daily has learnt.
In 2016, Mr Musinga filed for divorce, accusing his wife Esther Kyinkuhaire of infidelity. Consequently, the court granted custody of their children- two boys and one girl – to their mother.
But Ms Kyinkuhaire at the weekend told this website that Mr Musinga has since taken away the children. She claims that at the closure of the school academic term in November, the traffic police boss picked up the children from Hormisdallen Primary School, Kamwokya, three days before the term officially closed and took them to an unknown place.
“When I reached school, I was told their father has taken them but I need my children because I can effectively raise them. I am able-bodied and financially capable,” she said in an interview.
Ms Kyinkuhaire said attempts to reach Mr Musinga have been unfruitful. She said when her lawyers attempted to reach his office at Kampala CPS, he blocked them.
We could not immediately reach Mr Musinga for a comment.
When Mr Musinga filed for divorce, he also accused his wife of denying him conjugal rights. He had even claimed that the third of their children was not his until a DNA test proved the child was. The court granted them separation.
Ms Kyinkuhaire said she is ready to divorce Mr Musinga if he promises to keep paying the children’s fees, compensate her UGX100M, among other items.
