Police is holding a 47 years old man for defiling and impregnating his 16 year old daughter.
Clement Kashiiza, a resident of Lyantonde Village in Lyantonde district, was arrested after residents alerted police that he was planning to force the victim to abort.
Kashiiza had been living with his daughter since 2011 when his wife Margret Kashiiza abandoned their marital home over domestic disagreements.
According to the victim, Kashiiza started forcing her into committing incest a few months after her mother left her father’s home.
She says that the suspect has always warned her against telling anyone about what was going on up to when she was last night told that she was to abort the five months pregnancy.
Martin Lubega Lyantonde District Criminal Investigations Officer says that Police is waiting for a medical examination report as investigations into the matter continue.
