KAMPALA- Mr Gilbert Arinaitwe Bwana, a police officer who came to limelight in 2011 when he smashed Dr Kizza Besigye’s car and sprayed pepper in his eyes at Mulago Roundabout to stop him from demonstrating, has been arrested over alleged rape.
Police spokesperson, Mr Asan Kasingye, confirmed the arrest of Assistant Superintendent of Police Arinaitwe on Friday after he allegedly raped a teenage girl in his vehicle at Nakawa, a Kampala suburb.
Mr Kasingye said Mr Arinaitwe was redeployed to the Criminal Intelligence Department (CID) in April last year after spending five years on suspension.
He reportedly exchanged telephone contacts with the girl at CID headquarters in Kampala where the girl had been taken by her mother to be counselled on her unbecoming sexual desires that had affected her academic performance.
