Protest In Kampala Over Mayor Defilement Scandal
Nakawa Municipality Mayor Benjamin Sebuliba Kalumba is under fire for reportedly defiling two underage sisters.
At least 15 concerned residents of Kitintale suburb in Kampala on Friday stormed Sebuliba’s office to protest police’s failure to arrest the Mayor over the scandal.
Led by a one Richard, the charged crowd asked police to investigate Kalumba for reportedly impregnating a 16-year-old girl and defiling her sister.
The crowd further revealed in a bid to dodge justice, Kalumba bribed the victims’ mother into silence.
Kalumba has vehemently denied the allegations, attributing his woes to the works of his political nemesis Ronald Balyenzo.
Balyenzo lost to Kalumba in the hotly contested 2011 Municipality elections.
A few weeks ago, Nakawa residents petitioned IGP Lt. Gen. Kale Kayihura, Kampala RDC and Human Rights organisation seeking their intervention.
Kalumba reportedly took advantage of the girls when they approached him for signatures on their identification particulars.
Kalumba allegedly lured the two girls into sex after intoxicating them with alcohol.
Upon learning of the incident, the victims’ mother Jamida Namakula rushed to Kitintale Police Station where she opened up a case under file number 37/24/04/2012.
Residents claim Kalumba responded by compromising police to bury the case before “wetting the beak” of the victims’ mother.
The alleged sex scandal has left Kalumba with facial lacerations.
