Police in Sheema are holding a 39 year old man for defiling his 8 year old biological child.
Amuson Mushabe of Ryakasinga Shuuku town council, Sheema district was arrested by police from Shuuku on allegations of defiling his daughter and was later transferred to Sheema Central Police Station.
It is alleged that Mushabe picked his daughter from her bed room at night around 2Am on Tuesday, took her to his bed room and raped using her.
The incident happened when the mother of the child had gone to take care of her friend who had gone to give birth in hospital.
According to the victim’s brother, when he heard his sister crying, he rushed and called neighbors but unfortunately they found the father had escaped.
Namara who is a wife to Mushabe told www.mknewslink.com reporter that she rushed home in the morning after receiving the news and took the child to the hospital where it was confirmed that the daughter was indeed defiled.
www.mknewslink.com talked to the 8 year old child and she prayed that her father be imprisoned for 40 years.
Shuuku police station OC ASP Ronald Ouma confirmed the arrest and condemned the act.
He thanked the community for being cooperative and helping police to have the man arrested.
