KYANKWANZI, UGANDA: Police in Kyankwanzi District are investigating a case of murder and aggravated defilement of a 10-year-old girl who died days after being defiled by an unknown person.

Police identified the deceased as Christine Namukisa, 10, a Primary Three pupil at Bambala Primary school. The incident happened on Thursday, February 10, 2022.

According to Wamala Region Police spokesperson Racheal Kawala, It is alleged that at around 6pm, the deceased Namukisa reached home from school and proceeded to buy a sugar cane next to the trading center where she stayed for some time, and on her way back at around 7pm, she met an unidentified motorcyclist who deceived her that her mother had sent him to go with him and pick a bunch of banana from the garden along Muwangi- Ntwetwe Road.

Police added that “the deceased boarded the motorcycle and she was taken to a nearby coffee plantation of a one Nsabimana where she was forcefully removed from the bike, pulled to the coffee plantation and aggressively defiled by the motorcyclist, leaving her unconscious for about two hours.”

Namukisa later walked home and informed her mother about her ordeal prompting her mother to report to seek medical attention as well as alert police.

According to Kawala, from February 10, the girl had been admitted at Ntwetwe health center IV where she died barely two days later.

“The crime scene was visited by a team of detectives and an exhibit of a red knicker was recovered. Postmortem was done at the scene and vaginal swabs picked for DNA analysis as the search for the suspect is on,” Ms. Kawala explained.

She further strongly condemned such senseless acts of violence and urged parents to always be vigilant and closely monitor movements of their children.
