14 teen girls 'being trained to sleep with dogs' rescued in Muyenga

Police have stormed a guesthouse on Muyenga Hill in Kampala and rescued 14 girls found living in terrible conditions. The girls were reportedly being trained in conducting unnatural sexual acts including allegedly sleeping with dogs and being prepared to travel to a European destination for unspecified duties. 

Most of the girls are minors aged below 14, who by law cannot be employed, nor travel abroad without parental/guardian's consent. Only one girl is said to be 19. 

Acting upon a tip-off by concerned residents in Makindye Division, a Kampala suburb. Kampala Metropolitan Deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire said that the 14 girls were found at Papaya Holiday Home in Muyenga B Zone, Makindye Division. He said the older girl aged 19 claims to be a S.6 student of Namungoona Parents secondary school in Rubaga Division.

Owoyesigyire said that they were under the custody of a lady called Dorothy Ndagire who purports to operate an NGO called Maya Project, Uganda Chapter working in collaboration with another in the UK but not registered under the laws of Uganda.

“We went to the guest house and found the girls living in bad conditions and the information we got is that they were being forced to sleep with dogs,” said Owoyesigyire, adding that the girls have since refused to give information regarding where they came from and even their particulars.

Oweyesigyire revealed that the police have arrested and detained Ndagire amid ongoing investigations and the girls have since been taken to a home awaiting information regarding where they came from and who their parents are.

“These are children whom we cannot expose to the media, but they are currently under shelter and care of professional people who will speak to them and be able to find out their parents,” said Owoyesigyire.

He reveals that a charge of trafficking in children has been preferred against Ndagire. Immaculate Owomugisha, a social justice lawyer working as the head of advocacy at the Uganda Network On Law, Ethics and HIV/Aids (UGANET) said that the girls are being kept under shelter for safety as the police find their homes.

“The girls are in shelter as the police investigate the case and those found responsible shall be subjected to the law, but we are taking care of them as well as facilitating their health needs,” she added.

Section 5 of the Prevention of Trafficking in Persons Act of 2009 provides for an offense of trafficking in children where a person who recruits, transports, transfers, harbours or receives a child for the purpose of exploitation shall commit an offense of aggravated trafficking in children and may be liable to suffer death.

Here is a Country where the Head of State deployed minors at the age of 9 to 14 in his Notorious Robbers Army(NRA) to fight his murderous War that has kept him Killing Ugandans for 35 years!

it is Only in Uganda that Minors are found roaming the Streets of Kampala Begging for a Living!..All so-called "Homes" where these Small ones are Kept belong to stone Age Days! Not even Rats can live in Them!!

Lives of Minors in Uganda is taken for granted as They are not accounted to Anybody!

Today Slavery is taking Place in the 21 Century where Maids and Young Men are Trafficked to the middle East to work as House helps ( Kaddam or Kaddima)...All these are indications of a Failed State..

The first time i heard this story was in Jinja so many years ago, a certain white man had hired a prostitute to give sex to his lovely dog.

Sadly, the Germany shepherd which seemed sexually starved ruptured the ladies sexual organs.

Let me ask a question for which i dont need an answer. Can an African man be allowed to do these shameful things in the white man's land

So our kids are now subjected themselves to beastiality porn in order to survive. One can only imagine what those Arabs and Europeans do to them.

The corrupt killer regime is selling our kids in the worst kind of modern slavery, without any shame. Stop with the export of cheap labor.

This is shame
Someone starts an NGO en operates for a year without local authorities knowing then u say there is security.

Again the poor education system in the country is the one causing all these and lack of care of the government upon the citizens since they're in the offices all the time and they don't want to go in the field to see what children in school are learning.

Where is the nation heading to where you find a child is seduced for being taken away from her /his motherland bze of jobs abroad.

Look all youth a running away from the country both those who attended school and those who didn't attend attend to work very low payable jobs in foreign countries since they got nothing from school and they're unable to do well payable jobs coz they skills and knowledge.

Please it the government has failed, let it admit the failure and step down.
We shall put everything right by ourselves, we the citizens

Those who say "it's only in Uganda" and continue to blame everything on the state are terribly ignorant.

You have no idea what goes on in these so called "First World" countries where we live. They should be called "Low class" countries.

You would throw up all your guts and more. This lady's disgusting act is a drop in the ocean in light of the debased things humans are doing to fellow humans.

It is far worse out here and it's not happening to just trafficked humans. In fact, its only a matter of time before you begin to hear people advocate for legalisation of acts like beastiaility and paedophilia.

We should wait for the investigations before making conclusions.

There was a story on TV where parents of the girls came out and defended the "child trafficker' saying that she was taking care of them. It is alleged that the landlady of where the girls were found wanted more money for rent which Dorothy refused ti give.

In short, Dorothy refused and the landlady made up the story. As I have mentioned, let's give investigations a chance.
