Magambo Musa also known as Mulangira Musoga allegedly lured the girls in August 2019 when they visited his shrine in Mpigi to seek 'traditional cleansing.'
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga says that the two sisters aged 16 and 18 were convinced by the witchdoctor that the cleansing could only work through sexual intercourse. He adds that because of their young age, the duo could not make a decision to walk away or raise an alarm.
Magambo allegedly told the teenagers to keep around his shrine for somedays. While there, they were allegedly sexually abused severally every night. The girls later revealed the ordeal to their relatives who alerted the police about Magambo’s actions.
Police then launched a manhunt for the elusive Magambo until last week when he returned to his shrine to perform some traditional rituals. He will be charged with defilement, according to Enanga.
Enanga said investigators are also trying to find out whether he had a practising certificate or not. If he is found without a practising certificate, he will also be charged for illegally operating a shrine.
Magambo’s victims have since been handed over to the Child and Family Protection Unit (CFPU) for counselling. Police said the teenagers are yet to get to terms with what transpired and need emotional support.
