The Police in Mpigi district are holding Musa Magambo, also known as Mulangira Musoga, a witch doctor on allegation of sexually assaulting two teenage sisters and impregnating them.
The suspect was arrested over the weekend when the police raided his shrine at Masazi village, Kamengo Sub County. Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says the suspect lured the duo when they visited his shrine for traditional cleansing in August last year.
“The suspect lured them at night on several occasions and repeatedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of them, claiming he was inserting traditional medicine into their bodies,” Enanga said, adding: “He convinced them, that the act was a form of treatment. The victims, who are 16 and 18 years, are both pregnant for the suspect.”
“We condemn such acts of would-be-helpers, who betray the trust, given to them by vulnerable victims but instead end up abusing them. We have dispatched our counsellors from the Child and Family division, to try and take the victims through some form of counselling about their condition,” Enanga said.
He revealed that the police investigators are trying to reconstruct and document the scenes of crime, trace for incriminating evidence and forward the file to the DPP. “We will do everything within our means to ensure justice prevails in this case,” Enanga emphasized.
The Police Spokesperson called on other victims that could have been abused in similar circumstances to come out and report to police. “We strongly believe there could be more victims who could have been attacked under similar circumstances. We call upon them to come forward and register their complaint,” he said.
