Police in Iganga District has arrested a man for allegedly sneaking into residents’ homes and taking photos of naked women taking a bath.
The suspect, a resident of Nkatu Proper Village, Iganga Northern Division, Iganga Municipality, said he embraced the bizarre habit to boost his waning libido.
The suspect told police that the photos taken using his smartphone are stored in the photo gallery and later viewed allegedly to gain appetite for his wife in bed.
Mr. Muzamiru Ndoga, a brother to one of the victims, said the suspect was arrested after several women raised complaints that a voyeur was lurking in the area who matched his description.
According to Mr. Ndoga, the suspect ran out of luck when he came to take his sister’s photo in his (Ndoga’s) presence and was promptly arrested.
Mr. Ndoga added that the suspect was handed over to local leaders who in turn handed him over to police.

Mr. James Mubi, the Busoga East Police Spokesperson, said the 25-year-old suspect, who allegedly had “several photos of naked women in his possession, ” is detained at Iganga Central Police Station.
