NGO BOSS ARRESTED OVER CHILD TRAFFICKING

By Joel Mugabi

Police in Kampala say they have arrested Dorothy Ndagire, the director of Maya Project Uganda Chapter, a local NGO, over alleged child trafficking.

According to Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, at least 14 girls, aged between four and 19, were rescued from a guest house in Muyenga, Kampala, where they were being held.

The NGO is said to have been funded by partners in London, UK. Its boss Ndagire, a resident of Kawala Central Zone in Rubaga Division, has been arrested and detained on charges of trafficking in persons.

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

Police has since urged “parents who could have willingly or unwillingly given their children to the said Ndagire to follow up with Kabalagala Police.”

“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,” added the police publicist.

Meanwhile, Owoyesigyire dismissed reports that the children had been forced into unnatural acts with dogs, but revealed that an informer had told them the girls were always seen carrying dogs and also shared beds and rooms with them.
