Preliminary investigations indicate that the suspect would identify his preys by pretending as if providing gynaecology services to them and here he would take them to a special room where he would drug them with chloroform and later rape them.

“Suspected chloroform substances were recovered from his place of residence at the hospital, and a letter was found where he requested to be prayed for immoral thoughts he had been experiencing.”

Kutesa (the suspect)

Owoyesigyire said that using the same trick, Kutesa identified one of his latest victims from the Gynecology ward and drugged her with suspected chloroform before raping her, before he argued anyone who has ever been a victim of the monstrous act to come forward.

“We urge anyone who may have been a victim to come forward and report to the nearest police station. We take all allegations of sexual assault very seriously, and we are committed to ensuring that justice is served for all victims,” Owoyesigyire said.

He further noted that the safety and security of patients in hospitals are of utmost importance to the police and therefore urged any other patients who have suffered the same fate to come forward and report to police as investigations into the incident continue.

“We would like to inform the public that it is possible that there may be more victims of Kutesa Denis’ alleged crimes, and we urge anyone who may have been a victim to come forward and report to the nearest police station. We take all allegations of sexual assault very seriously, and we are committed to ensuring that justice is served for all victims,” he said.

“We will work closely with all stakeholders to ensure that such incidents do not occur in the future.”
