SP Martial Tumusiime, the Greater Bushenyi Police spokesperson is being hunted on allegations of impregnating a suspect and neglecting a child.
Jane Asiimwe Muhindo, the Bushenyi District Resident Commissioner says that SP Tumusiime impregnated Phoebe Katusiime, 31, a resident of Katanda Village, Katanda Sub County in Rubirizi District.
Preliminary investigations indicate that Katusiime met Tumusiime at Kizinda Police Station where she was battling charges of child theft. He thereafter gave the victim Shs 2,000 to help her board to Bushenyi Central Police Station CPS where the Police Spokesperson lured into sleeping with her for a week as he helped her to settle her case.
Katusiiime later reportedly became pregnant, and informed the police officer who warned her to never again tell him that “nosense”, prompting her to report the matter to police. He had warned her never to tell him about her or anyone about the pregnancy.
Katusiime later found out she had gotten pregnant for the police officer and she alleges that shs approached the Bushenyi probation officer who sent her to the office of the RDC where she got little money to buy food for her baby.
According to Bushenyi Resident District Commissioner Jane Asiimwe Muhindo, she tried to reach Tumusiime through his phone to settle the issue, and the two decided that he should send Shs 50,000 every month to take care of the child but he still refused.
While addressing journalists in her office, the RDC noted that she tried to talk and guide Tumusiime over the issue but still he refused to comprehend and therefore she had to address the issue to the media.
According to the RDC, SP Tumusiime accepted he would offer Shs 30,000 which the mother of the two months old baby boy says is not enough to take care of the young one.
The police case of child neglect under SD: 24/31/03/2022 has been slapped against Tumusiime and the investigations are ongoing.
