A 43-year-old man is de­tained at Ki­maeti po­lice post in Bu­mula sub­county for al­legedly sodomis­ing a 10-yearold boy with a men­tal dis­abil­ity for seven hours.

Na­para vil­lage chief Joseph Waswa (pic­tured) said it was not the man’s first of­fence, adding he had tried to sodomise his own fa­ther.

The man is said to have mo­lested the boy on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. The child had been sent by his mother to buy soap and cook­ing oil at a nearby shop when the man stopped him.

Waswa said the man in­vited the boy to his house by say­ing he wanted to cure his men­tal sick­ness.

“The boy was pass­ing a to­bacco plan­ta­tion where the man was. He asked him to go his house where he locked the door. He then took his mat­tress and placed it on the floor and be­gan to sodomise the boy. The child goes to a nearby school,” he said.

The vic­tim and the man were taken to Amagoro Hospi­tal in Bu­sia for ex­am­i­na­tion and to col­lect sam­ples in the in­ves­ti­ga­tion for the man to be charged in court.
