Police raided a shrine at Masazi village, Kamengo sub-county in Mpigi District and arrested a one Magambo Musa alias Mulangira Musoga over allegations that he sexually assaulted two female siblings and impregnated them.
According to Police, the incident occurred last year in August when the two victims visited Magambo’s shrine for traditional cleansing and healing.
Magombo convinced the two female siblings into having sexual intercourse with each of them on several occasions claiming to be inserting traditional medicine into their bodies.
“He convinced them, that the act was a form of treatment. The victims, who are 16 and 18 years respectively, are both pregnant for the suspect,” reads part of Police’s statement.
“We condemn such acts of would-be-helpers, who betray the trust, given to them by vulnerable victims but instead end up abusing them. We have dispatched our counselors from the Child and Family division, to try and take the victims through some form of counseling about their condition,” Police say.
Police reveals that their investigators are trying to reconstruct and document the scenes of crime, trace for incriminating evidence and send the file to the DPP, vowing that they will do everything within their means to ensure justice prevails in this case.
“We strongly believe there could be more victims who could have been attacked under similar circumstances. We call upon them to come forward and register their complaint,” Police added.
