Police in Mukono have arrested a primary school head teacher for allegedly defiling a 16-year-old girl under his care.
Hamisi Mukalazi, 37, the owner of Star Primary School in Goma Division, Bukerere, Mukono Municipality is said to have taken the victim from her relatives ostensibly to help her attain some education since he owns a school.
The victim (who cannot be named) told Police that Mukalazi started seducing her and repeatedly sexually exploiting her since 2017.
She said he would force her to sleep with him whenever his wife was away and whenever she complained, he would threaten to stop funding her education.
The victim then became pregnant and it is alleged that Mukalazi attempted to force her to have an abortion by swallowing some tablets which caused a bad reaction in the girl.
Mukalazi is said to have panicked and fearing his wife figuring out his affair with the young girl, took the victim back to her grandmother in the village.
The grandmother saw the girl was sick and sought the attention of nurses who discovered the girl was pregnant and had attempted to abort and called in the police.
A case file CRB 221/2018 has been opened, according to Kampala Metropolitan Police.
