In Luwero district, authorities are currently conducting a search for an individual suspected of sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy. While the identity of the suspect remains undisclosed, it is believed that she resides in the Namaliga-East Zone within Bombo town council, and the victim also resides in the same vicinity.
The incident reportedly transpired on a Saturday at approximately 4 am. The young victim had left his parental residence with the intention of collecting grasshoppers near the nearby sources of light.
During his journey, he encountered a woman known to him by sight, who halted him and offered him something to take home. Subsequently, she convinced him to visit her dwelling.
Upon arrival at her residence, the woman purportedly shut the door, disrobed the boy, and compelled him to lie down on her bed. She issued a warning that any noise from him would result in accusations of theft.
Following this, the suspect coerced the boy into participating in sexual activities and used threats to ensure his silence. The victim returned home in a distressed state, and when questioned by his parents, he divulged the details of the ordeal.
The concerned parents promptly sought medical attention for the boy and reported the matter to law enforcement. Sam Twiineamazima, the police spokesperson for the Savannah Region, confirmed the incident in an official statement. He indicated that upon receiving the report, the police acted swiftly, documented the scene, and initiated legal proceedings for a case of aggravated defilement.
This occurrence follows closely on the heels of the arrest of Jona Ssebamanya, the director of King’s Palace Primary School in Luwero district. Ssebamanya stands accused of defiling six pupils who were candidates for primary leaving examinations (PLE), with the victims’ ages ranging from 14 to 17 years.
