High Court judge Jane Francis Abodo has remanded to Luzira Prison 53 year old Flugensio Ssebandeke for allegedly defiling his 11 year old granddaughter.
Ssebandeke, a bodaboda rider was charged with aggravated defilement by the court.
He denied all charges.
Prosecution contends that on December 29th 2015 while at Kabowa village in Kampala district, the accused performed a sexual act with the girl for whom he was the custodian, and that he was HIV positive.
The victim was staying at the time with her grandmother Fatuma Nalwadda (wife to accused) at Kabowa.
It’s further alleged that before the incident, the accused asked the victim to sleep with him on the same bed so that he could teach her something.
The victim says she rejected the request and run away, but on December 29th 2015 the accused asked the victim again to escort him to a shop to buy sugar.
She says instead he dragged her behind the toilet where he forced himself on her.
This matter has been adjourned to 3rd December 2019 for hearing.
