Court in Kumi District has remanded a 45-year-old disabled man for allegedly defiling an 11-year-old girl.
Manasi Odongo appeared before the Kumi Grade One Magistrate Hope Namisi but was not allowed to enter plea since the court does not have powers to try capital offenses.
She immediately sent Odongo on remand in Kumi Government Prison until August 2. Odongo, a neighbour to the victim, is alleged to have taken advantage of her parents’ absence to defile her. He denies the allegations.
