Kampala - A polygamist in Uganda's central district of Mubende shocked fellow villagers who caught him red-handed defiling his 6-year-old daughter.
He allegedly confessed that he was told by traditional healers that in order to maintain his riches, he had to sleep with each of his daughters under 10 years.
Ronald Mutebi, who has two wives, was arrested by villagers who found him in the act.
''I was passing by his home when I heard a child crying loudly. I decided to enter the house to see what was happening only to find Mutebi defiling his 6-year-old daughter,'' said is neighbor, Swaibu Ndawula.
By the time he was committing the offense, his wives and other children had gone to work in the garden.
Ndawula said that he sounded an alarm and villagers ran to the scene. They started beating him up but police came in and rescued him.
Under tight security, Mutebi was taken to Mubende police station from where he will be taken to court. The child has been taken to Mubende hospital for treatment.
According to villagers, that was not the first time for Mutebi to defile his underage daughters, as they claimed that that was the third but whenever he is arrested and taken to police, he bribes police officers and he is released.
He confessed before police that he was instructed by traditional healers to it so as to stay rich.
This time they vowed to lynch him if he is released by police.
