Security guard arrested for defiling 8-year-old girl at Orphanage

Kamuli, (UG):- The Territorial Police in Busoga North and Kamuli Central Police Station are holding in custody a local security guard for the aggravated defilement of an 8-year-old, female orphan at an orphanage in Kamuli Municipality.

The suspect, identified as Kizito Imulani, aged 40, is also accused of indecently assaulting two other juveniles, aged 8 and 10, during the month of May 2024, at Master Children Ministries and Orphanage where he has been employed since 2023, to guard the premises and its occupants.

“It was established from the 3 girl victims, that the suspect would inappropriately touch their body parts and also lure them sexually,” police spokesperson SCP Fred Enanga said in a police statement, adding that the victims were medically examined and one of them had proof of sexual abuse.

Mr Enanga hailed the victims for opening up on the matter to the authorities at the orphanage who then alerted the police to apprehend the suspect.

“We are glad that the victims despite their age, took courage and reported the matter to the Matron, who alerted the school management and the police.”

“The suspect had held himself as a trusted protector of the orphans since 2023, but betrayed that trust, by harming them sexually and physically,” added Enanga.

Police said Kizito Imulani now faces charges of aggravated defilement, in addition to two other counts of indecent assault.

“The arrest should serve as a deterrent to other child predators, who would take advantage of vulnerable children. Adults are obligated to look after children and take care of them, but not prey on them sexually,” Enanga concluded.
