Mohammed Kivumbi, the director of  Vision Nursery and Primary School in Busula trading center in Luwero district is in police custody accused of defiling his pupil.

It is alleged that on Friday, April 1, 2022, the suspect summoned the 11-year-old girl to his office around 10 pm through the school matron and defiled her. The victim told URN that Kivumbi asked her to bring books to his office after night preps. 

She, however, explains that no sooner had she stepped into the office than the director switched off the lights and forced her into sexual intercourse. She says that Kivumbi threatened to curse her to fail her Primary Leaving Exams if she dares to tell anybody about the incident.

She claims that Kivumbi repeatedly used the same trick to defile her several times prompting her to open up to her mother during her visit to the school. The victim's mother told URN that she immediately rushed her child to Luwero hospital where it was established that she was defiled and infected with Sexually Transmitted Diseases-STDS.

She immediately lodged a complaint at Wobulenzi Police Station, which swung into action and picked up the director.
