Trouble for Asadu Wamala, the Director Wamala Mixed Secondary School who is accused of defiling an S.2 student has doubled after the Director of Public Prosecution Mike Chibita sanctioned his file.
Police tracked and arrested Wamala from Luweero District where he had taken refuge after being released on court bail on charges of indecent assault instead of defilement.
Lat week, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni questioned how defilement turned into a case of indecent assault and ordered for Wamala's re-arrest while addressing the 25th Police Council meeting at Naguru police headquarters. Police launched a hunt for Wmala from his known home in Nsangi, Wakiso District but he had already escaped and taken refuge elsewhere.
The Criminal Investigations Directorate –CID sent a team of detectives to track his phone signals until he was found hiding in a relative’s home in Luweero.
“Colleagues we can confirm that our detectives arrested Wamala Asadu the Director of Wamala primary and secondary school located in Mpigi District. The suspect was arrested yesterday Nov 28, 2019 from Kikyuusa in Luweero District where he had taken a hide” Charles Twine CID Spokesperson, said.
According to Twine, the suspect is accused of Aggravated Defilement, Unlawful and indecently Assaulting a girl aged 17 years. Currently, 8 other teenage girls are accusing Wamala of defilement.
Charges have been sanctioned by the DPP, after an evaluation of the evidence that was assembled by detectives and confirming that it can warrant prosecution. The suspect is said to have committed the cases on November 3 and 4, at Wamala Secondary School located in Mpambire Village in Mpigi District.
Wamala’s arrest also involved Inspector General of Police –IGP Martin Okoth Ochola and CID director AIGP Grace Akullo after President Museveni’s directive.
