One of the committed crimes in the region is rape to women something that is still puzzling the police in charge of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV) in the District. They recently expressed concern over the increasing rape and defilement cases in the district revealing that they at least have one case per day and 30 monthly related to rape.

This was revealed by the Assistant inspector of Police Julius Twesiime who is in charge of SGBV at Ntungamo police station.

“There has been a tendency by several women in rural areas who say they do not put on knickers during the day due to hot weather,” Twesiime He said.
