On August 10, 2023, at Buganda Road court, D/SP Arinaitwe Gilbert Bwana, a CI officer, was charged with criminal changes of trafficking in persons for sexual exploitation by the SGBV/TIP Department of CID Headquarters in collaboration with the territorial police in KMP South.

According to SCP Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, the suspect brought a 23-year-old female victim from Ntungamo District to work as a maid, but he allegedly forced her into repeated acts of sex at his home.

“The suspect, who brought the 23-year-old  female victim from Ntungamo District to work as a maid, allegedly coerced her into repeated acts of sex at his home in Bandwe-Nalumunye on July 25, 2023,” Enanga said.

Enanga further said that the suspect was arrested, investigated, and charged in court.

However, according to Enanga, more charges are pending the retrieval of DNA results.

According to Enanga, the situation is more terrible because the suspect is a sworn police officer with a responsibility to safeguard the public.

The suspect’s appearance in court, according to Enanga, demonstrates the police’s commitment to fight anyone who victimises vulnerable civilians, regardless of their status.
