Defiled Teenager arrested over attempted murder

Kabale.The Police in Kabale have in their custody a 16 year girl who is suspected to have given birth to a bouncing baby boy wrapped him in a polythene bag and threw him in pit latrine.

Kigezi Regional Police Spokesman Elly Maate has confirmed that the girl (names withheld on request) is a resident of Kansinga village in Burambira Parish in Kaharo Sub County in Kabale District .

Maate said that the case was reported to Police at Nyanja by one Kapare Robert who hails from the same village and the Police rushed to the scene and rescued the one day old baby.

Maate said that the baby who had not yet died was rushed to Kabale Regional Referral Hospital where he was immediately admitted and put on medication and is doing well.

“The Police managed to trace the mother of the baby and was arrested and is being detained at Kabale Police Station” Maate said.

A case of attempted murder has been registered at Kabale Police Station under reference number CRB 652/2020 to help in further management of the case.

However, Maate has said that since it has been established that the girl was below 18 years , a case of defilement will be preferred against the man who impregnated her.

“We have instructed the District Police Commander Kabale to establish if a case of defilement was ever reported at the Police and if not a suspected  defiler must be sought and be arrested” Maate said.

Maate said that the girl was defiled and the Police must hunt for the suspected defiler.
