Last week Umoja Standard broke a story where a mob attempted to storm PMM Girls School in Jinja City alleging that one of school’s female teacher was a lesbian but Police intervened affirmatively and controlled the situation however, Mukhoda was arrested on that day.
“We went ahead and arrested her and she is still in our custody. We are now trying to gather witness statements and documentary evidence that can help us establish cases of aggravated defilement, the grooming of young girls into unnatural sexual practices and even trafficking in persons,” police spokesperson Fred Enanga said during a press conference in Kampala yesterday.
He said many of the alleged victims have failed to show up at the police station to aid with investigations.
“The only person we got is a lady who was staying with this deputy head teacher as husband and wife, although they are both females. We still have her in our custody and she is supporting our investigations. We got sex toys, condoms in their home and inquiries are continuing,” Mr Enanga said.
“What is interesting is that people will always come up and make a lot of allegations but as we talk now, the many councillors who were saying that they have like three victims have not availed these victims for us to interrogate and examine them because the evidence should be on their bodies,” Mr Enanga said.
He said they even went to a lodge which is alleged to have been used by the suspect to assault the girls but did not find anything.
“So it is always important that when we have complaints and such allegations, let us be ready to support the investigations,” Mr Enanga said
“The school which was saying they were transporting, recruiting and grooming young girls from PMM, up to now, hasn’t given police any victims to record their statements,” he said.
