KISORO, UGANDA: A 43-year-old man in Kisoro has been arrested for allegedly defiling and infecting his 4-year-old biological daughter with HIV/AIDS.
The suspect identified as Justus Twesigomwe, a resident of Nyaruyaga Village, Nyamagana Ward, Kisoro Municipality is currently being detained at Kisoro district police station.
According to Ms. Dianah Niyonsaba, who happens to be Twesigomwe’s wife and the mother of the child, her husband defiled their daughter when she was away due to family domestic issues.
Niyonsaba described her husband as a violent man who often beats her and narrates that when she returned the next morning, she found her daughter crying in pain while touching her private parts.
Upon interrogating her daughter further, she discovered that the father had defiled her. She says she rushed her to Kisoro Hospital for a medical examination.
“My worst fears were confirmed. My child had been defiled and worse still, she has been infected with HIV/AIDS,” said Niyonsaba.
The medical workers intervened in the matter and reported the case to Police after Niyonsaba was too afraid to stand up against her tormentorous husband.
Kisoro police registered the case under file number 40/11/07/2022 as investigations into the allegations continue.
