Gilbert Arinaitwe who is infamous for smashing opposition doyen Kizza Besigye’s car window with his pistol and then spraying pepper into his eyes in 2011 is currently in hot soup as he may face imprisonment after the medical results implicate that an 18 year girl was severely raped and he is the one responsible.
A medical examination conducted on the 18 year old girl accusing a senior police intelligence officer, Gilbert Arinaitwe of rape has confirmed that she was indeed sexually abused.
The rape victim appeared on Monday 7th August before the Criminal Investigations Directorate at Kibuli together with her mother and recorded a statement implicating Arinaitwe. A reliable source at Kibuli told URN on condition of anonymity that the medical examination report that was released on Sunday shows that the girl was sexually abused. Police spokesperson, Asan Kasingye has also confirmed that the girl was abused, adding that whoever was involved will be held to account.
“This young girl needed help and it’s so unfortunate that someone took advantage of her. We are not hiding anything. We are going to investigate the matter to its conclusion,” Kasingye chirped. Arinaitwe was arrested on Friday evening last week and locked up at Railways police cells for allegedly raping the schoolgirl.
Preliminary investigations further indicate that Arinaitwe met the victim at CID headquarters in Kibuli, a week ago and took her contacts. The victim and her mother had gone to Kibuli to meet detectives in the Family Protection Unit. The mother had wanted officers to advise her daughter because she was losing concentration in her studies. In 2011, Arinaitwe made into the news when he brutalized Dr Kiiza Besigye, the former Forum for Democratic Change party president during the walk to work demonstrations at Mulago roundabout.
Arinaitwe who was exonerated by the Directorate of Public Prosecutions in August 2014 on grounds that he acted in line with the provision of the Police Act and the Penal code. He also hit the news recently when he appeared on TV ministering and performing healing miracles at Rubaga Miracle Center and Redeemed Church in Masajja.
