Samuel Mugabi, a head teacher of Wampa Primary school in Namutumba district, was on Friday evening arrested by police over defilement charges.

The head teacher was found defiling the young girl in his house. Two used condoms were discovered on the floor of his bedroom by police during the arrest.
 
Samson Lubega, South Eastern regional police spokesperson, says the arrest was made after concerned people tipped police off.
 
Lubega says the people accuse Mugabi of sexually abusing most of the pupils at his school, yet he is married with three wives and five children.
 
Paul Wairugala a LC1 Chairperson Wampa village says it is a shame for a head teacher to commit such an act in the community.
 
He says the police and parents of the young girl must make sure the suspect is brought to the courts of law.
 
It is not the first time a head teacher has defiled a child in his school.  In 2012 Richard Ojok, the former head teacher of Oloo primary School in Alebtong district, defiled and impregnated a 15-year-old pupil. While in May 2013 Police in Mayuge arrested a school head teacher for allegedly defiling a seven year old pupil.
 
James Wambi, who heads Mwazi Primary School in Mpungwe Sub County, was arrested after  he was caught defiling a primary five pupil of Sayuni Nursery and Primary School.
