70-Year-Old Arrested Over Defiling 5-Year-Old Grand Daughter

Police in Hoima have arrested a 70-year-old man on allegations of defiling his 5-year-old granddaughter.

The suspect is Keya Kafeero, a resident of Buhirigi LCI in Buhirigi parish Bombo Sub-county Hoima district.

Kafeero reportedly grabbed the child after she had been sent by the mother to collect plates from Kafeero’s house on Monday.

After waiting for the child to come in vain, the mother followed her and caught Kafeero red-handed defiling the victim. 

This prompted the child’s mother to sound an alarm that attracted residents who pounced on Kafeero and beat him to coma.

He was however rescued by local council officials who arrested and took him to Kigorobya police station.

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine region police spokesperson says that the suspect will be taken to court to be charged with aggravated defilement and incest once police investigations are completed.
