By Ivan Mwine

The police in Kampala on Saturday rescued at least 14 teenage girls from a guest house in Muyenga, a Kampala suburb, where they had been allegedly hoarded with intent to be trafficked while others were allegedly being forced into sex slavery.

According to ASP Luke Owoyesigire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) deputy police spokesperson, the girls were rescued from a guest house, where they had been taken Dorothy Ndagire, who was allegedly forcing them to sleep with men for money while trafficking others.

Although there had earlier on been allegations that the girls were also being forced to have sex with animals, Owoyesigire has since come out to refute the same, insisting that the underage girls  were only being forced to engage in sex with men.

In a statement released by the police today, Owoyesigire revealed that; “Following the rescue of 14 young girls from a room at a guest house in Muyenga, Makindye division, Police calls upon parents who could have willingly or unwillingly given their children to the said Ndagire-to follow up with Kabalagala Police.”

He added that; “The 14 girls only between the ages of 4-19 years were allegedly being trafficked by Ndagire Dorothy 27, a resident of Kawala Central Zone in Rubaga division through her NGO called ‘Maya project Uganda chapter’ with partners allegedly based in London.”

He revealed that Ndagire has since been arrested and charged with trafficking in persons.

Owoyesigire also noted that; “While Police has already established that the NGO is NOT registered with the NGO board, further investigations are ongoing to ascertain the group behind this vice and their intention.”

He revealed that the children are currently staying with a professional children’s home as police intensifies efforts to trace for their parents.
