THE Police are holding a sub-county councillor over defiling and impregnating a 15-year-old girl. The district criminal investigations chief, John Dhabangi, identified the suspect as Jowari Waiswa, 46, who represents Nyondo parish at Kayonza sub-county.
The victim was a P.7 candidate at Nyondo Primary School. The girl is three months pregnant.
The district Woman MP, Florence Nayiga, expressed disappointment over the councillorâ€™s act, saying as a leader, Waiswa should have been the first person to protect the rights of girls from being violated.
She asked the Police to speed up its investigations and take the suspect to court as a lesson to other leaders.
