A Ugandan nursing assistant has reportedly been apprehended for allegedly drugging, raping and impregnating a married woman.
The 29-year-old nursing assistant from Najeera hospital in Nakawa Division, Kampala has been charged and remanded to Luzira Prison over the incident.
It was gathered that Samuel Tumukuratire, a resident of Najeera appeared before City Hall Court grade one magistrate Moses Nabende on Monday, but was not allowed to take plea because his case is only triable by the High Court.
Prosecution led by Jackie Kyansimire states that on June 5, 2017 at Najeera hospital, Tumukuratire sedated his female patient after which he had sexual intercourse with her without her consent.
Three months after the incident, the victim realised that she was pregnant yet she had taken a year without having sex because her husband was working overseas by then.
Tumukuratire was however arrested and confessed to have raped many of his patients whom he first subjected to a compulsory HIV test.
He returns to court on August 18, 2017 for mention of his case as police investigations continue.
