Bakari Muga Bashir, the western police spokesperson identifies the suspect as Ategeka Swale, a resident of Kitago village, Rwensenene parish in Buheesi Sub County, Kabarole district.

It is alleged that Ategeka in March 2011 sexually assaulted his 13 year old daughter, a primary four pupil at Kitago primary school, when her mother had gone to see her parents in the village and left the victim with the father.

The victim reveals that when the mother left, the suspect asked her to move to his bedroom where he sexually abused her daily for a whole month.

Bakari says the mother became suspicious after seeing the daughter’s stomach begin to protrude and when she asked her what had happened, the victim revealed that the father had been having sex with her when she was away.
The girl reportedly told the mother that she was five months pregnant.

 Angered by the story, the mother reported the matter to Buheesi police post leading to Ategeka’s arrest on Monday.
Bakari says the suspect has been transferred and detained at Fort Portal police adding that he will be taken to court to answer charges of aggravated defilement and incest.
