Police in Butaleja District are investigating a case of aggravated defilement of two juvenile sisters aged 10 and 17.
Moses Mugwe, the Bukedi Regional Police Spokesperson, identified the suspect as Jackson Mbisyo, 35, a Witch Doctor and resident of Faaga Village, Busabi Sub-County, Butaleja District accused of defiling the minors.
“The suspect allegedly did child marriage with the elder sister but when she called her sibling to help her with home chores, the husband decided to aggravatedly defile her sibling,” said Mugwe.
One of the victims (names withheld) said to have dropped out in Primary Four at Napekere Primary school, revealed that she got married to the suspect in April 2021.
“I saw my little sister moving in pain. When I checked, I discovered that she had been defiled several times,” she claimed.
Mugwe says after discovering her husband’s shameful act prompted the minor to report to police which responded quickly to arrest the suspect.
According to Mary Nafuna, the minors’ mother, the doctor who examined them confirmed that they were defiled.
Police observations indicated that the victims are yet to get to terms with what transpired and need emotional and financial support and as such both victims have been handed over to the Child and family Protection Unit (CFPU) for counseling.
Police said the suspect will be charged with aggravated defilement after investigations.
