A student of senior four has given birth days to the Uganda National Examinations [Uneb] briefing scheduled for this week.

The 17-year-old student of St Joseph’s Hospital in Kitgum district was allegedly raped in January this year in Kabale town.

According to New Vision, the girl was expelled from her former school, Namirembe Hillside High School before connecting to Kitgum.

She got 37 aggregates in UCE MOCKS and hopes for a first grade in the UCE final exams.

Pupils arrest defiler head teacher

Meanwhile, Daily Monitor reports that pupils of Okokorio Primary School in Katakwi District have arrested their head teacher for allegedly defiling their colleague.

The head teacher who was later detained at Katakwi Central Police Station, was found defiling a 15-year-old girl in his house.

The children reportedly surrounded the house and a commotion ensued as they blocked him from escaping.

The suspect recently defiled an 11-year-old girl but he reportedly compromised police officers at Toroma Police Post and the parents who lost interest in the case.

The area police spokesperson, Michael Odongo, told Monitor the suspect would be charged with aggravated defilement.
