Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesperson ASP Luke Oweyesigire has disclosed that Katwe Police Station has arrested Zura Mukamana, 36, a mother who allegedly hired out her 14-year-old daughter for sex to two different men so that they can give her some money.

In a statement released today afternoon, ASP Oweyesigire also disclosed one of the men was arrested.

“One of the suspects, Fred Bulega, 41, who is alleged to have had sexual intercourse with the girl was also arrested. The arrest of Mukamana followed a viral video received by Police, in which a 14-year-old girl claimed that she was being forced by her mother to have sexual intercourse with men” Oweyesigire said.

ASP oweyesigire said that before the viral video, Mukamana had reported to police a case of disappearance of her daughter at Salama and police started investigations.

“The girl was later recovered from her father’s home where she had run for refuge. The father took the girl to police and investigations led to the arrest of the second man-John Mwesigye, 18, who is said to have had sexual intercourse with the girl. Mwesigye has since been charged and remanded on offence defilement,” he said.

He added, “Bulega, who is also alleged to have defiled the girl, is still in detention as investigations and medical examination continue. Both case files with a range of offences will be submitted to the Director of Public Prosecution for perusal and sanctioning as soon as investigations are done.”

“We thank the girl for standing for her human rights and for reporting a criminal case to police as the Constitution tasks every citizen to do. We, as police, condemn any form of child rights abuse and ask the public, to report any case of sexual abuse they encounter in their homes to relevant authorities. The girl has since been handed over to the father as investigations go on . We will work with different agencies to provide counseling for the victim,” the statement says.

The girl is now five months pregnant.

The late Walugembe (inset)

SECURITY operatives in Nyendo, Masaka municipality were forced to fire live bullets in air to disperse huge crowds of bodaboda riders who attacked Nyendo police station after the death of their colleague.

Hussein Walugembe, a businessman in Masaka burnt himself inside the office of Masaka traffic department.

In the process, one traffic officer was injured and very many files were burnt to ashes.

It is alleged that trouble started when officers impounded Walugembe’s motorcycle on Tuesday at 7:30pm during curfew hours and took it to Masaka police yard for safe custody.

At around 8:00pm, Walugembe followed them and pleaded with them to return his bike because it was his only source of income.

Police officers with jerrycans of water and a fire extinguisher trying to put out the fire

According to his colleagues, police officers ordered him to pay the Shs.150,000 if he wanted his bodaboda back.

When he pleaded that he could not afford the huge amount of money they were asking for, the officers insisted that they will not give him his bike until he pays the money.

Early the next morning at 8:00am, Walugembe stormed the traffic office with a Rwenzori mineral water bottle full of petrol and threatened to kill himself if they do not give him his motorcycle.

The officer in charge told him to pay the money they had asked from him.

Walugembe’s body being taken for burial

Walugembe swore that if they did not give him his bike, he was going to die with the officer.

He then opened the bottle and showered himself with the petrol and poured some in the office, he removed a matchbox from his pocket and lit himself.

He tried to grab the traffic officer to burn with him but he sneaked through his armpits and took off.

Police officers panicked and looked for fire extinguishers to stop the fire. By the time they got some extinguishers from the nearby petrol station, most of the traffic files had been destroyed and Walugembe was dead.

ASP Muhmood Nsubuga the greater Masaka police spokesperson said that the body of the deceased was taken to Masaka mortuary for postmortem as investigations kick off.

According to Dr. Seenyonjo from Masaka Regional Referral Hospital, the deceased died from severe extensive burns.

Police has opened a file under SD:35/02/07/2020.

Walugembe’s body was taken to his home area at Kyajubira for burial.

He has left two children and a wife.

Lawyer Ssemakadde Threatens To Sue Lt. Col. Nakalema For Arresting M7’s Alleged Land Grabbers, Guides On How Whole Saga Would Be Legally Handled…..

Published

on

Celebrated Human Rights Lawyer Isaac Ssemakade has threatened to sue Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema, the head of the State House anti-Corruption unit in her personal capacity over abuse of office and illegally detaining Ugandans.

Speaking to this website, Ssemakadde disclosed that he is concerned with the way Nakalema is being used to abuse the law to the extent of arresting and detaining people because she has been appointed by the President.

“Land owners if aggrieved must seek redress from the land division of the High Court, we must not duplicate and multiply processes. She will be sued individually because she is not the first woman Museveni is using to fix land matters. All of them who tried have been sued individually after burning their hands,” Ssemakadde said.

Ssemakadde advised the President to move to the High Court lands division in his capacity as Mr. Museveni and file a case in his personal name.

He insisted that in Uganda, no person has powers to give remedies to Museveni concerning his allegedly grabbed land apart from a High Court judge at the land division.

Ssemakadde directed President Museveni that once he files a case at the High Court, he should be ready to testify and tell court how he obtained the land in question otherwise no one will accommodate the impunity of imprisoning Ugandans because they are accused of grabbing president Museveni’s land.

He advised the authorities with immediate effect to release on police bond Peter Segane and Jimmy Suuna who were arrested on orders of Lt. Col. Nakalema who accused them of encroaching on president Yoweri Museveni’s land at Katwekambwa in Kabulasoke sub county, Gomba district.

He revealed that the public understands the pain the old man from Rwakitura is going through but he is not the only one suffering at the hands of land grabbers, many Ugandans are crying after their land was grabbed.

He insisted that Ugandans are offended when the law is abused to profit Museveni.

Ssemakadde further revealed that if Uganda was like other Democratic countries, by now the process of impeaching the president will be underway for abusing government systems.

However, Nakalema insists that Segane and Suuna fraudulently acquired five land titles on the land already registered in Yoweri Museveni’s names.

She said that her team have already identified a number of lapses in the processing of the land titles from the level of the area land committees, district land boards and the Ministry of Lands.
