KASESE: Police in Bwera has arrested a secondary teacher at St Jude high school in Karujumba in Kyarumba sub county Kasese district for impregnating a sixteen year old student and aiding in procuring her abortion.
The Rwenzori east regional police commander Ceaser Julius Tusingwire confirmed the information to UJK and identified the suspect as Zephanus Walima Mutiba.
He told our reporter that the victim was a senior two student and was staying with her relative in Karujumba.
Tusingwire revealed that police investigations indicate that many other female students at the same school have been falling victims of the same incident with threats from the perpetrators against them not to speak about their wrongdoings.
He said police acting on information from students, who had turned rowdy in protest of their teachers’ sexual acts against their fellow students, also arrested the school deputy head teacher to help in investigations about the alleged teachers’ misconduct.
