Man cuts off hand of 16-year-old student for resisting rape attempt

A 16-year-old senior student in Bududa District, Uganda, was accosted and beaten by a machete-wielding man who cut off her hand after she resisted his attempt to rape her.

The 25-year-old suspect Derrick Kuloba, was attacked near a forest on her way home to pick beddings and food for her sick mother, who had been admitted.Evelyn Namasopo told Mbale Chief Magistrate, Mr James Mawanda, during a session at Bubulo Magistrate’s Court in Manafwa District on Wednesday, April 7.

“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 hearing of a case in which Kuloba is accused of attempted murder.

Evelyn said she made an alarm expecting to get help but in vain, adding that she’s still enduring a lot of pain, she also blamed police and Mbale Court of trying to frustrate her case because Kuloba was released under unclear circumstances a few days after his arrest.

Prosecution told court that Kuloba, a resident of Nabooti Village, Nakatsi Sub-County in Bududa District, on July 4, 2020 armed with a machete, waylaid the victim and attacked her before chopping off her right hand in a botched rape

The girl also sustained several injuries on other parts of the body. Prosecution presented three witnesses; the victim, her cousin and uncle.

In her testimony, the girl further asked court to give Kuloba a harsh punishment. The case was adjourned to April 8, 2021 when Prosecution is expected to present more witnesses in court.
