"I Need Justice From The Court Because Am Now Disabled" - Rape Victim Demands

The world today is full of wickedness. Each day passes by with devastating news happening around the world, more emphasis on Africa.

In yet another sad story a 16-year-old SHS student named Evelyn Namasopo has fallen victim after a rapist cut off her hands after she resisted rape.

The young girl who was inflicted with severe wounds is now demanding justice after the man i=not only did inflict wounds but chopped off her hand also.

Sharing her ordeal on how it all happened, Evelyn during a session at Bubulo Magistrate’s Court in Manafwa District on Wednesday, April 7 presided over by Mbale Chief Magistrate, Mr James Mawanda said;

“The suspect Derrick Kuloba, 25, attacked her near a forest on her way home to pick beddings and food for her sick mother who had been admitted.

He (Kuloba) started ordering me to undress and when I refused, he pulled out a machete and started cutting me. He wanted to cut my head but I tried to guard it with my right hand,”

Evelyn, a resident of Bududa District, Uganda recounted how she screamed for help on the day of the incident but help never came.

I need justice from this court because I’m now disabled. I’m not able to do any day-to-day activities like I used to. I can’t even write,” she lamented.

The victim accused police and Mbale Court of trying to frustrate her case because Kuloba was released under unclear circumstances a few days after his arrest.
