Man arrested for defiling two daughters

Kampala – Police in Kitintale have arrested a man for allegedly defiling his two biological daughters.

The suspect identified as James Biryabarema a resident of Biina zone D, Luzira, Kitintale in Nakawa division is alleged to have defiled his two primary school going daughters aged 15 and 17.

According to Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, the two siblings who stay with their father at Biina Zone D reported the matter to Zainabu Mirembe, the Secretary Women Affairs on January 6, 2023 after they got fed up with repeated acts of sexual violance and victimisation by their father.

Mirembe then alerted the police at Kitintale which managed to arrest the father.

The victims, Enanga notes were medically examined and found to have been defiled by their father for several years.

“When we arrested the father, we examined and found him to be very normal so in doing this, he knew that he was actually defiling his daughters,” said Enanga

“…we want to use this opportunity to inform local leaders and the community that Intra-familial sexual abuse; where children are abused by their fathers and other adults in the home is real,” said Enanga urging family members and victims to engage police’s family and child protection unit for help whenever they see early warning signs.

“Now in this incident, we want to thank these two girl victims for taking the courage to stand up for their rights and report their abusive father to the authorities and this is the beginning of the healing process,” he added

Enanga noted that officers from the Sexual and Gender Based Violence Unit are in touch with the two girl victims to see how they can be counselled better and given a shelter home that can take over their welfare.
