“My husband was arrested by police and sent on remand at Kakiika Government prison in Mbarara district where he spent seven years. He was released in April this year on court bail. We have eight children, but with such behavior our marriage has been torn apart and I am living with my parents in Bushenyi district, Ms. Taremwa said in tears.
She added that her daughter who was defiled is currently getting treatment at Ruhoko health center 1V.
One of the sons of Taremwa calls upon the government to send his father to Luzira prison on life imprisonment because he behaves like a beast and has ashamed his family.

The District Police Commander, Ibanda, Ms. Molly Angomoku confirmed that Charles Taremwa was arrested and will be produced in court of laws to answer the charges slapped against him.
