KAMPALA: Police at Old Kampala is holding a teacher identified as Kabenge attached to King’s College Buddo on allegations of defiling a 15-year-old student allegedly belonging to Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago.
Kabenge was arrested from the school over the weekend and taken to Nsangi police station where he was detained before being taken to Old Kampala police station.
Patrick Onyango the Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson confirmed the arrest of the teacher but could not reveal details as investigations are still ongoing.
“Yes we are holding a teacher from king’s college Buddo on allegations of defiling and impregnating a student but I can’t tell you the details of the case,” said Onyango.
Our police spies told us that Kabenga defiled and impregnated the15-year-old girl, names withheld during the last holiday because she is allegedly two months pregnant.
Our spies added that police had kept the case from the public because it involves a high profile person and one of the academic giants in the country but it was later burst by one of the parents of the school who was tipped by one of the school workers.
“Parents of the school who learnt of the incident could not keep quiet as they are concerned about what happens to their children at the school,” our spy heard one of the parents talking.
Our spies added that police now want to take the teacher for medical examination to ascertain HIV status before other charges could be slapped on to him.
When contacted Lord Mayor Lukwago to confirm whether he is the biological father of the child, he told us that we called at night and we should call back in the morning.
