Kampala. When the school administration of Kamwokya KCCA Primary School, found one of their pupils in great pain and bleeding heavily, they were not prepared for the distressing information she would give them.
The girl, a Primary Seven pupil, had been intentionally injured by her mother, who suspected her of having a boyfriend at school. According to Ms Jane Kansiime, the headmistress, the girl was bleeding profusely which forced them to report the matter to Kira Road Police Station.
“We found that the girl could hardly move because the woman put her fingers in the girl’s private parts. She was trying to check whether she was sleeping with men. With that anger, I think she damaged some of her body parts. The girl is in pain, I think she got an infection,” Kansiime said.
Kira Road Police Station has since arrested the woman who is a resident of Kamwokya Church Zone.
Not the first timeMs Kansiime revealed that this was not the first time the girl was complaining about being harassed and beaten by her step mother. The officer in-charge of the Child Protection Unit at Kira Road Police, Mr John Mugerwa, has confirmed the incident.
“The girl was brought here at night on Tuesday in so much pain and we instructed the school headmistress to first take her to the hospital. The following morning, we raided the home of the suspect and arrested her as she tried to take off,” Mr Mugerwa said.He added that investigations have already been carried out and the file will be sent to the State Attorney.
