A 16-year-old girl has recounted her recent ordeal with a sex predator.

 

According to the 16-year-old the man who attempted to sexually molest her cut off her left hand for resisting rape.

The senior two students in Bududa District, Uganda, told Mbale Chief Magistrate, Mr James Mawanda; during a session at Bubulo Magistrate’s Court in Manafwa District that the suspect Derrick Kuloba, 25; attacked her near a forest on her way home to pick beddings and food for her sick mother who had been admitted.

“He (Kuloba) started ordering me to undress and when I refused he pulled out a machete and started cutting me.

He wanted to cut my head but I tried to guard it with my right hand,” she told the court during the hearing of a case in which Kuloba is accused of attempted murder.

 

Evelyn said she made an alarm hoping to get help but all her attempts were in vain.

 

 

She added that she’s still experiencing a lot of pain in different parts of her body.

 

The girl accused police and Mbale Court of trying to frustrate her case because Kuloba was released under unclear circumstances a few days after his arrest.

 

“I need justice from this court because I’m now disabled. I’m not able to do any day-to-day activities like I used to. I can’t even write,” she explained.
