Police have arrested two university students on allegations of sedating a woman and repeatedly raping her on Independence Day October 9.

The suspects are; Innocent Wasande and Emmanuel Mwijukye while the alleged victim has only been identified as Cindy. According to records, Wasande is a student of Makerere University while Mwijukye is a student of Kampala International University (KIU) western campus. They allegedly raped Cindy after drugging her inside a bar in Nakulabye, Lubaga Division, in Kampala City.

Cindy said that she left her home and business area in the Kabawo zone, Lubaga division at around 7 pm on Monday. She then went to Nakulabye for leisure where the suspects allegedly befriended her.

“I didn’t go with any friend or relative. I went alone but I found two young men who tried to befriend me. I don’t know what they did, and I don’t know how I was taken out of the bar up to being raped and then being taken to a medical facility,” Cindy reportedly said.

Old Kampala police detectives have said that Cindy was rescued by a passerby who saw the students sexually assaulting her in turns. She alerted other people who came to her rescue and arrested the two students.

“Cindy was sedated while in the bar and these students successfully sneaked her out of the bar without the management’s observation. They came into the bar determined to get one female victim to satisfy their sexual urge,” detectives said.

Cindy has said she operates a mobile money shop and often goes to Nakulabye to spend her evening after work. Luke Owoyesigyire the deputy Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson said bars have men and women who target victims of the opposite sex.

“We now ask the management of these bars to always be very observant to know who came in alone or accompanied. If someone came into the bar alone and there were people supporting him or her to get out of the bar, please interrogate them to know whether they are related and ascertain the condition of the client,” Owoyesigyire said.

This is not the first time people have been sedated inside bars, raped, or robbed clean. A number of civilians and security officers have been victims of people sedating them inside bars and afterwards, they rob them clean. This is common in Kawempe Tula, Kanyanya, Mpeleerwe, and Makindye Salama road.
