Ugandan teacher arrested for eloping with his 16-year-old student and impregnating her



Police in Butaleja District in eastern Uganda have arrested a 31-year-old teacher for allegedly eloping with his 16-year-old student.



The suspect, identified as John Omondi, allegedly eloped with one of his students at Mabale Primary School in Butaleja Sub-county in January this year, before he got her pregnant.



His arrest came after some parents reported the case to Butaleja Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Mr Stanley Bayole.



The police spokesman for Bukedi South Region, Mr Moses Mugwe, who confirmed the incident on Sunday, May 30, said Omondi’s offence amounted to aggravated defilement.



"We have arrested a teacher in a government-aided primary school on allegations of defiling, marrying and impregnating a pupil (names withheld because she’s a minor). Both the suspect and the victim were found staying together," Mr Mugwe said.
