Police in Kabale district are hunting for an unidentified woman who had an abortion and dumped the lifeless foetus behind Kabale Municipal Stadium.
The foetus estimated at around six months, was discovered by one Amos Musinguzi, a butcher and resident of Kekubo in the Southern division of Kabale municipality.
Musinguzi says he discovered the body on Tuesday and that it had injuries around its chest, an indication that it could have been carried to the area by dogs.

The Kigezi regional Police spokesperson Elly Maate says a manhunt is ongoing for the suspect.
Maate asked public especially in Kabale town to volunteer to Police any information that could lead to the identification and arrest of the possible mother so that she faces the law.
