A 15-year-old girl wanted her love to last longer than the usual so, she decided to mix a love potion and gave it to him but it turned out to be poison.
The girl, who was only identified as Judith, decided to give her boyfriend, a resident of Kamwenge the love portion just after getting intimate in the bush. She had mixed the potion with soda and he drunk it.
Moments after he drank the soda, he collapsed and started gasping for breath which scared the girl and she ran away. His body was found two days later. The girl was arrested by police after villagers who used to see her in the company of the deceased, suspected her of poisoning him.
The woman who gave her the love potion has already disappeared. The 15-year-old is detained at Fort Portal Remand Home and is blaming her neighbor for poisoning her man and maintains innocence.
“The lady gave me the herbs to seduce my boyfriend so that he loves me more. I mixed the herbs in soda and gave my boyfriend to drink. Little did I know that she had given me poison to kill my man,” the remorseful Judith says.
The case has already been committed to the High Court.
Judith is a former pupil of Kamwenge Primary School.
