By Our Reporter




The LCV Chairman Bukwo district in the Sebei sub region is being hunted by police over allegations that he defiled and trafficked a 16 year old student.


This was revealed by Police Mouthpiece, SCP Fred Enanga while addressing journalists in the weekly Joint Security briefing at Naguru police headquarters yesterday, 12th September 2022.


“The facts gathered indicate that the victim left her parents’ home in Bukwo on the 28.11.2021, and came for holidays in Kampala. While in Kampala, she went and visited a friend called Amidu Anthony, where she was lured into a friendship, by the suspect Chelimo Julius, the LC5 Chairman Bukwo district.” Enanga said.


Enanga further said that on the 6.05.2022, the victim was picked by a one Amisi Latif, at Usafi market and linked up with the suspect who was waiting for the victim at Shell Petrol Station in Kireka. He further transported them to Mbale, where the two (suspects and victim) slept at Starlight Hotel.


The victim however, managed to sneak out of the Hotel on the 7.05.2022, and travelled back to her parent’s home in Bukwo. Again, on the 18.05.2022, her disappearance was caused from their home, and traced to the home of Chesang Doreen, a relative to the suspect and reunited with her family.


The victim was once again trafficked from their home, between May 2022 and 24.08.2022, and harbored at the home of the Chemutai Caroline in Budaka district, a cousin to the suspect. The suspect would occasionally pick her up, take her to a lodge and drop her home later.


The victim is currently under the protection and care, of the Sexual and Gender Based Violence Unit of CID Headquarters.


According to Enanga, police has already obtained very relevant statements from credible witnesses, and samples from the victim for further DNA analysis.


“A serious manhunt for the Chairman LC, who wields a lot of power and influence in Bukwo district and Sebei region is ongoing.” Enanga said.


Any person who is arrested, charged and convicted on charges of aggravated defilement and child trafficking C/S 129(3) of the Penal Code Act and Sec 5 (A) of the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons Act 2009, is liable to suffer death.
