After residents of Kiwempe, Kansanga cried to police, the police carried out an operation which led to the arrest of a man who was accused by the residents for defiling three underage girls.
The defiled girls were aged between three and five girls. Boda Boda cyclist, Rogers Mutaasa was arrested by police for allegedly defiling three girls and was increasingly becoming a scare to others who had not befallen his wrath. However, police later released him, much to the surprise and hurt of the girl’s parents and residents due to insufficient evidence.
One of the parents told the Police Spokesperson, Judith Nabakooba that she once found evidence of the act on her daughter’s clothes after Mutaasa had defiled her but Police said there was no evidence that the victim had been defiled in the first place. Mutaasa allegedly lures his victims with small gifts into his house, a one room and he defiles them.
One of Mutaasa’s victim’s private parts were said to be rotting and had to be rushed to Nsambya Hospital for check up upon Nabakooba’s orders. Doctors found that the victim’s private parts had been extensively damaged.
Mutaasa at the moment is nursing injuries which he incurred as a result of an accident.
Cases of defilement in Uganda are alarming but police is doing little to nothing to help parents and the victims of the acts.
