“It is true we have Businge in custody on allegations of defilement. We have finished our investigations and we are going to take him to court any time from now,” Mugarura told

Businge was arrested on Sunday morning at African bar in Fort Portal town. His arrest followed his refusal to report to police after the police summoned him several times over allegations of defilement and child neglect.

“I summoned him several times and I called him on phone more than a thousand times but he did not respond. It has been so hard to get him, but now that he is my hands, I will make sure he is charged,” warned Mugarura.

He further revealed the victim had made frantic calls to police, threatening to strip naked if police fell short of arresting Businge.

Earlier, the victim recorded her statement pining Businge for defiling and impregnating her. She also accused Businge of neglect.


In her statement, the girl said Businge used to make love to her at Allan Resort along Fort Portal- Kasese road.
