The victim accused police of arresting the suspect and later releasing him under unclear circumstances.

I want police to re-arrest the suspect because I need justice. He should be arrested and prosecuted,” she said.

She appealed to Inspector General of Police and the head of the Anti-Corruption Unit of Sate House, Lt Col Edith Nakalema, to intervene.

The Police Director of Criminal Investigations Directorate should also intervene and help us to get justice,”
Ms Khainza said.

My daughter has lost her hand and she is in pain. We don’t even have money for her specialised treatment,” Ms Khainza added .

However, Mr Anthony Mutuma, the officer-in-charge of criminal investigations, said they are finding it hard to find the suspect because the victim told the detective that she could not identify the person who committed the offence.

We arrested two suspects and we processed a file of attempted murder against the suspects and I couldn’t release them because it is a criminal case. But the Resident State Attorney in Bududa instructed us to release the suspects on police bond because the victim in her statement was not clear. The girl said it was dark and that she could not recognise the person who committed the offence,” Mr Mutuma said.
