The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has directed the trial of a 30-year old father before the High Court for allegedly defiling his 3- month old biological daughter.
Zaidi Kanonko has appeared before Mukono court grade one magistrate Steven Waidhuba who committed him on the DPP’s orders.
Prosecution states that the accused committed the offense on September 19th 2020 at Geregere village in Buikwe district.
It adds that on the fateful day at around 5pm the mother left the victim at home with her father as she went to the market to buy some groceries.
She returned about 20minutes later only to find Kanonko had undressed the baby and he had changed into shorts from the trousers he had earlier worn and was lying on the floor beside the toddler that was at time crying uncontrollably.
The mother of the victim rushed the baby to Kawolo hospital where the doctors conducted examination and found that she had indeed been defiled with fresh bruises and her private parts.
The doctors then immediately alerted police from a nearby station who effected the arrest.
