Ssalongo Christopher Kityo, a 37-year-old fisherman operating at Gerenge landing site, in Nalugala Parish, Katabi Town Council was on Tuesday arrested over defiling his 11-year-old twin daughter, a pupil at Cherish Uganda Primary School.

Kityo was allegedly caught in the act by his 26-year-old wife Lydia Namiiro, the mother of the twins when she returned home from a vigil in the neighbourhood in the wee hours of Tuesday morning only to find Kityo drunk and stark naked.

The victim immediately narrated her ordeal to her mother.

Namiiro immediately informed a one Allen of the village security team who in turn contacted the OC Mpala Police Post, Joseph Ssekitoleko.

By the time Ssekitoleko and his team arrived, a mob had already ganged up and beaten Kityo. 

Bruised and battered, he was later whisked away to Entebbe General Hospital for treatment before being taken back to Mpala Police Post, to record a statement.

Namiiro who looks after her family by doing several odd jobs including fetching firewood and doing laundry said that her little girls confided in her that their father has always sexually molesting them.

"Even our eldest girl who was born HIV negative, later contracted the virus and she is currently on ARVs courtesy of her dad," narrated Namiiro adding that Kityo refused to start anti-retroviral treatment.

When asked to comment on the allegations, Kityo denied defiling his daughter claiming that his wife carefully planned the whole incident in order to grab his plot of land.

Ssekitoleko condemned the act and revealed that Kityo will be charged with aggravated defilement under SD Ref: 07/1/09/2017.

He appealed to the fishermen to desist from drug abuse.
