KASESE RADIO PRESENTER HELD FOR DEFILEMENT
A radio presenter in Kasese district is being held by police over alleged defilement of a thirteen year-old girl.
The Officer in Charge of Criminal Investigations in Kasese Godwin Tumugumye says Ronald Niwagyira 29, known for his stage name Dj. Ronnie the Best is a sports presenter with UBC Engeya FM in Kasese town.
Tumugumye says that the radio presenter was reportedly caught red handed by the victim’s mother who had trailed the daughter to his rented room in Kasese town on the night of Sunday.
There are reports that the girl is pregnant for the Radio presenter.
Nuwagira was arrested by the police after being tipped by the victim’s mother who had locked his door from outside.
The OC/CID says that Nuwagira who hails from Kabale district will be taken to court to be charged with aggravated defilement.
His arrest comes just a week after a Pentecostal pastor Samson Mwesigwa was remanded to Mubuku government prison by Kasese Chief Magistrate Agatonica Mbabazi over alleged defilement of a thirteen year old girl.
The district police commander Michael Sabila Musaani says defilement cases are high in the district although most parents only report the suspects after failed negotiations. END
