He reportedly went to his neighbours’ home and told their nine-year-old daughter that her father had sent him to take her to their family business.

Simon Mukose Muwewesi, 27, of Kikabula village, Nakavule parish in Bugiri district, is now being held for defilement at the district Police headquarters.

The Police chief, Patrick Mugizi, said Muwewesi allegedly committed the offence at about 10:00pm.

The girl, (names withheld) whose parents found her lying in a pool of blood, was defiled in a nearby maize plantation.

On examination, Dr. Stephen Isabirye said the victim’s vagina had been ripped about six inches, letting loose the intestines which were reportedly destroyed. He said they could not operate on the girl whose condition had worsened. She was referred to Jinja Hospital.
