By Ambrose Kweronda
Dr. Bright Innocent the Kaharo Health Centre III in charge was yesterday afternoon re-arrest on orders of the Kabale Resident District Commissioner Godfrey Nyakahuma.
It’s alleged that on 26th October 2022, Dr. Bright cut an arm of an 11 year old P7 pupil a resident of Kashaki A village, Buhara Parish in Buhara subcounty of Kabale district while threatening her sexually.
Nyakahuma while speaking to our reporter said that Dr. Bright after committing this incident was immediately arrested but shortly released under unclear circumstances which the RDC said was not in order because the girl was in critical conditions thus an injustice to her.
RDC Nyakahuma yesterday accompanied by Luben Mutabazi the Kabale District Internal Security Officer further ordered for Dr. Bright’s re-arrest, after visiting the victim at Our Lady of Good Health Hospital alias Rushorooza Hospital.
Eveline Neema the enrolled nurse at Our Lady of Good Health Rushorooza Hospital who is attending to victim revealed that she was brought in much pain since the arm was deeply cut to almost falling down though according to x-ray examination there is a hope of recovery and improvement in the near future.
Sonia Komugisha the mother of victim also told our reporter that on Wednesday of 26th October 2022 in the evening her daughter told her that Dr Bright wanted to send her somewhere which the mother couldn’t stop her since they were family friends.
Komugisha added that she was surprised in a short time to see the daughter coming back crying and bleeding saying its Bright who had cut her arm.
She added that she reported the case at Kabale Central Police Station and Bright was arrested but disappointingly Bright was seen at his home the following day.
