POLICE in Budondo Sub County are seeking the whereabouts of a 17 year old student who reportedly impregnated an 11-year-old girl.
The girl is currently three months pregnant and has been a P.5 pupil at Nawangoma Primary School in Budondo Sub County, Jinja district. She dropped out of school.
The Kiira North-Buwenge division police commander Samuel Madira said the pregnancy was first reported at Buyala Police Station after a health worker at Budondo Health Centre III diagnosed her.
He said that the girl was allegedly impregnated by Alex Mulekwa, a senior two student at East Secondary School.
Moses Mukungu, the Butagaya sub county chief said that the girl narrated to him how Mulekwa first gave her 10 tablets to abort but in vain.
He added that the girl further said that Mulekwa gave her another 10 tablets the second time but when that didn’t work either, he added her eight tablets which left her weak and feverish and prompted her to go to Budondo Health Centre III for treatment.
Police officers opened up a file case number SD: 10/06/03/2014 and told the girl to go and tell her guardian that she was needed at Police.
Mukungu revealed how the girl, an orphan, was beaten up and chased out of her home by her guardian.
Madira said Police started investigations into the matter adding that efforts to capture the young man are underway.
He cautioned parents to always spare some time and advise their children particularly girls about sexual reproductive issues.
