A 58-year-old man identified as Tomusange Ronald who sexually abused a 16-year-old orphan that had been left under his care has been committed to the high court for trial on charges of Aggravated Defilement and Trafficking.
Resident State Attorney Janet Kitimbo informed Buganda road court Grade One Magistrate Stella Amabilisi that investigations into this case are complete and that there is evidence implicating Tomusange to this crime.
The evidence prosecution intends to present at the High court shows that on 28th June 2020 at Namungoona Kasubi Zone in Rubaga Division in Kampala, Tomusange being a person in authority performed a sexual act with a girl under the age of 18 years.
Tomusange took advantage of the victim after his wife Nakawesa Teddy left home due to misunderstandings the couple had.
Investigations indicate that Nakawesa met the victim in 2019 and accepted to stay with her since victim’s biological father was in prison for defiling his own daughter while her biological mother was deceased and she had nowhere to seek refuge.
Magistrate Amabilis received the committal papers and told Tomusange to go back to Luzira prison and wait for his trial in the next convenient session of the high court.
