According to sources at the children’s department, guardians and some parents have been a stumbling block in the successful prosecution of family members who defile their minors and in some instances even impregnated them.

According to an officer from the department who sought anonymity as he is not authorized to speak to journalists, about 10 cases have been reported in Kigumo Sub-County this year and suspects are undergoing trial at the Kigumo Law Courts.
