Makerere University student has accused a custodian of Olympia Hostel in Kikoni, a Kampala suburb, of sexually abusing her while she was residing at the hostel. She said the incident took place in June and she later filed a case against him at the Wandegeya Police Station.
She Narrates the police sent her to Mulago National Referral Hospital for a medical examination and according to the medical report,the student had a ruptured hymen consistent with a possible rape.
Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson Mr Luke Owoyesigire, told CampassTv that the case is still being investigated but the crime scene was tampered with when the victim shifted to a different hostel.
“It is true we investigated that matter. The lady opened up a case of rape at Wandegeya police. She alleges that this gentleman (custodian) got access to her room while she was asleep, raped her and went away. We obtained the statement of the suspect as well as sent the victim for a medical examination,” he said.
However, before the case was filed almost a month after the alleged rape incident, there was not much evidence to sustain a charge of rape.
The hostel owner said the girls making these accusations have been procured by competitors in the hostel business to tarnish the name of the hostel. They are the same girls from 2019 and they are planning to take action against them for defamation.
