The Police in Old Kampala is holding two defilement suspects and investigating circumstances under which two cases of aggravated defilement happened.
According to Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga, one of the cases is of an HIV positive female teacher who defiled a 16 year old male juvenile on December 27, 2021 at the staff quarters of Namungoona Kigobe Primary School.
“The suspect identified as Nanya Elizabeth, a 42-year-old, female teacher, lured the male victim to her room at the staff quarters. While in the room, she caused the victim to remove his clothes and indulged into an unlawful act of sexual intercourse. The suspect had unprotected sex with the victim, with the full knowledge of her HIV status. The victim was examined and immediately put on Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP),” Enanga said.
Police also has in custody a one Jackson Oleama 20, of Olali village for defiling a 3-year-old girl victim at Panya village, Yiki Parish, Madi Okollo district.
According to Police, Jackson took advantage of the responsibility by Araka Rabeka, the mother of the victim for him to look after the girl as she went to the market to buy food.
“Unfortunately, the suspect took advantage of the girl victim and defiled her. He was found red-handed in the act by the elder brother who informed their mother and the matter was reported to police. As a result, the suspect was arrested and detained in custody.” He revealed.
Enanga says that such incidents show how both, male and female juveniles remain vulnerable and targeted by sexual predators.
“Many child predators are not strangers to victims. They are usually relatives to the victim or acquaintances such as neighbors, siblings, family friends, teachers etc, who appear to be warm, caring, loving and respectful.” He concluded.
