that was built by Save the Children International at Karugutu town council
headquarters with funds from Norway.
“I’m cautioning the people and police not to take this centre as prison
but a safer and friendly environment for neglected and abused children,” Barbra
“The leaders and locals need to own the extended projects and maintain
them. It’s unfortunate Ugandans need to be zero tolerance to corruption and
theft or else citizens would continue to suffer in terms of service delivery.”

Her tough comment came after Sam Mukirane, the Save the Children area
manager Ntoroko and Bundibugyo districts, asked the Rwenzori region Police

district, stole 20 desks out of the 50 that Save the children had donated to the
According to Mukirane, the head teacher who committed the offence in
early February 2014, was arrested and detained at Bundibugyo police station for
four days and later released on bond.
“The case file was with the state Attorney Bundibugyo district. We ask
the RPC to intervene and have the head teacher re-arrested and convicted in
courts of law.”
Mukirane disclosed that they advocated for the Child Reception Centre in
Ntoroko following the rampant cases of child abandonment, kid napping and
harassment, among others and the police would get stuck with such victims.
“Many children of that nature were being mishandled at police station
not because the police does not know how to handle them but because of lack of
facilities. Ntoroko and Bundibugyo have faced a problem of domestic violence
leading to child abandonment but we have launched a campaign in villages and
schools sensitizing them against the vice.”
Ntoroko Child Reception Centre, well-equipped with bedding and toilets, will
accommodate 12 children.
