Arua district registers 1,000 defilement cases in six months

Arua district is grappling with a surge in defilement cases. Over 1,000 cases were reported between January and June this year. Records from the district probation and social welfare department show that at least 1,008 young girls between 3 and 17 years of age were defiled over the past six months.

The most affected sub-counties are Arivu, Ajia, Vurra, and Logiri. Stephen Eguma, the Arua District Probation and Welfare Officer says that most of the affected girls are of school-going age. He says the perpetrators of the vice are mostly relatives of the girls who are supposed to take care of them.

Jimmy Anguyo, the Child and Family Protection Unit head at Arua central police station notes that although some defilement cases are reported to police, others go unreported since some parents prefer negotiating with the suspects.
