A 37-year-old fisherman, Salongo Christopher Kityo, has allegedly defiled his 11-year-old daughter in Katabi Town Council, Uganda.
The suspect who operates at Gerege landing site, in Nalugala Parish, was on Tuesday caught pants down by his 26-year-old wife, Lydia Namiiro, also HIV positive.
According to Entebbe News, Namiiro returned home from a vigil in the neighborhood and on entering the house, found her husband naked and drunk. He was alleged to have defiled the child, who is a pupil at Cherish Uganda primary school.
The girl reportedly informed her mother of the incident saying she was in serious pain. Namiiro in turn informed the neighbours who contacted the OC Mpala Police Post, Joseph Sekitoleko.
The suspect, who had been mobbed by his neighbours was whisked to Entebbe Grade B Hospital by the police officer after he sustained several injuries from the beating.
The girl was also rushed to the same hospital for treatment to avoid contracting the HIV/AIDS Virus.
However, Kityo who was subsequently charged to court for aggravated defilement, denied the accusation. He claimed his wife carefully planned the incident to take over his land.
