CIRCULATING BLOG POST.
Busia police officer caught having sex with COVID-19 patient in quarantine centre. He was caught having sex with a female COVID-19 patient quarantined at the Agricultural Training Centre (ATC) in Busia at Uganda-Kenya border.
The ATC quarantine facility is usually guarded by three police officers and three prison warders around the clock. The centre admits COVID-19 patients from the Busia GK Prison and the neighbouring community. The two groups (inmates and ordinary citizens) are, however, kept in separate wards.
At 10pm Thursday, one of the oficers manning the facility, identified as Police Constable Emmanuel Ng’etich, began engaging a COVID-19 patient in a conversation. A prison warder, Police Constable Jeff Obondo, who was puzzled by Ng’etich’s actions, went to the guardroom, where he informed his colleagues about what Ng’etich was doing.
“All the officers [thereafter] went to check what was happening. However, they did not find Ng’etich and the COVID-19 patient. [As a result], they became suspicious and started looking around. Several minutes past 10pm, they heard noise and commotion emanating from the women’s ward,” says a police report filed at the Busia Police Station at 00:30am Friday, July 17.
“The police officers rushed there and found all the female patients outside, complaining that Police Constable Ng’etich was raping the lady [she had earlier struck a conversation with].”
Authorities say when they went into the woman’s room, they found her and Ng’etich naked in bed.
