A man in Mukono district is accusing officers from Kiyindi police station of damaging his manhood. 

Deo Wasswa, 27, a resident of Kiyindi LC I in  Kiyindi town council alleges that on June 15th, 2022, officers from Kiyindi police station stormed his residence under the command of John Bosco Amandara and ordered him to enter his house.

According to Amandara, he inquired from the officers why they were ordering him to enter his house but they instead started assaulting him and grabbed him by his manhood and dragged him to the police station.

Cue out: ...ssaawa yonna,"//

Amandara explains that he was bleeding by the time he arrived at the police station. "At police they told that I am involved motorcycle robberies within the area since my official work is riding bodabod," Wasswa said. Our reporter visited Wasswa where he showed him swollen testicles and rotting private parts.

Wasswa can hardly wear panties and trousers. It takes him about half an hour to pass urine. His wife has since abandoned him together with their two son, who has since dropped out of school. Wasswa returned the motorcycle he was using to ride Boda boda to his boss after losing hope of working again. 

His mother Cissy Namugga, says that they have failed to raise money required for her son's treatment. She explains that the hospital asked them to raise Shillings 500, 000 for a scan.

Isaac Edward Mazinga, the LC 3 Vice Chairperson of Kiyindi town council, says despite reporting the incident to the relevant authorities nothing is being done. The Ssezibwa Regional Police Spokesperson, Hellen Butoto appeals to the affected residents to report the matter to Lugazi central police station for expeditious response. 

"We condemn all acts of brutality and assault within in Police. We appeal to whoever has fallen victim to report to us for investigations. We shall always ensure justice is delivered to the victims," Butoto notes.
