A school director at Busula in Luweero District is under Police custody for allegedly defiling a Primary Seven pupil in his own school.
The Police on Thursday confirmed to this website that the case is under investigation, saying that the director after defiling the pupil, threatened her never to disclose it to anybody or face problems.
“The suspect is under police custody while the case file is with the State Attorney for perusal and advice before the suspect is arraigned before court,” Mr Issah Ssemwogerere, the Savannah regional police spokesperson, told the Daily Monitor on Thursday.
Ms Fatuma Mbabazi, the mother of the victim explains that her daughter passed on the information due to the severe pain after the repeated sexual acts by the school director who always coerced the girl to take her school bag to the office at 10.00pm.
“The girl revealed that the school director always told the matron to allow the girl to take the school bag to the office of the director of the school after the school preps at 10.00pm. The director threatened to curse and ensure that she fails the Primary Leaving Exams (PLE) if she ever disclosed the incident,” Mbabazi revealed in her statement to police in Luweero.
Ms Mbabazi further stated: “When we took the girl for a medical checkup, the medics discovered that she has infections that need treatment among other collaborative evidence that point to forced sexual acts. At the time of arrest, the suspect who pleaded guilty tried to use his relatives to enter into negotiations with the parents. We have lost trust in the school officials and demand that the suspect be taken to court. My daughter is in great pain.”
