“Defilement and robbery cases top the list of offenses here and most offenders are actually mature people who are victimizing young and helpless individuals.”

Justice Gaswaga asked stakeholders in the districts of Bushenyi, about it Rubirizi, prescription Sheema, Mitooma, and Buhweju to step up efforts to protect children from defilers.

The judge also expressed disappointment that people in the region look at machetes as the only solution to their problems.

“Besides defilement, we have lost many lives at the hands of the growing number of blood spillers in society. Innocent bodaboda cyclists have been killed and robbed of their motorcycles at night.”

The judge, who was expecting less than 40 cases, was told he will be handling 79, in the 30 days, some of which back to 2010.
