Detectives from Jinja-Road Police station have finally arrested a casual labourer who has been on the run after raping and strangling a 10-year-girl to death in Kinawataka suburbs in Nakawa division in Kampala. 

 

The suspect is Gerald Sematiko, a resident of Katogo Zone in Kinawataka.  After killing the minor, Sematiko stuffed her body in a sack and dumped it in the nearby drainage channel hoping that rain would wash it away before fleeing.  

Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesiyire told URN that detectives traced and arrested Sematiko on Wednesday evening from Kirinya-Bweyogerere in Kira Wakiso district.
