Police Officer SP Gilbert Arinaitwe Bwana appearing before Court on Tuesday.
The Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court has committed police detective Gilbert Arinaitwe Bwana, commonly known as 'Besigye tormentor' to the International Crimes Division of the High Court for trial on charges of aggravated trafficking.   

It is alleged that Arinaitwe recruited, transported, and harboured his 23-year-old housemaid for purposes of sexual exploitation on June 23, 2023, at his home in Nalumunye-Bandwe, Kyengera town council.   

This Tuesday, Arinaitwe has been committed by court presided over by the Chief Magistrate Ronald Kayizzi who directed him to continue reporting to the Registrar of the ICD every last Thursday of the month until the next convenient session of the High Court.

Arinaitwe is out on bail.

This was after State Attorney Ivan Kyazze told court that they have gathered evidence to pin Arinaitwe in regard to the alleged aggravated trafficking in persons case and tendered before court documents showing the summary of  the case.   

The evidence before Court shows that the victim was staying in Ntungamo District with her father who happens to be a traditionalist and could not allow her to go to church,and she dropped out of school in 2018 due to sickness.    Out of desperation,  she decided to get married to a husband whom she later abandoned in 2022 because of mistreatment

That  on the night of June 23rd 2023, the accused person followed the victim to the bedroom and forcefully had unprotected sex with the victim, according to the court the documents. 

Records further state that the victim went to Mbarara and  that’s when Arinaitwe coordinated the journey of the victim on phone, and that the accused policeman and his girlfriend received the victim who traveled by Global  Bus to Kampala.     

According to the court indictment drafted by Chief State Attorney Joseph Kyomuhendo on behalf of the DPP, the accused Arinaitwe told the victim that she would be working for him as house maid at a monthly wage of 70,000 shillings.  

“That the accused person left his girlfriend in bed with just a towel wrapped around his waist, went to the kitchen where the victim was washing utensils and made sexual gestures to the victim, and he held her tightly and attempted to unwrap his towel but the victim pushed him away,” reads the court document.   

The state contends that  Arinaitwe’s girlfriend stayed for one week and left at the beginning of July 2023 and that after her departure, he found the victim in the sitting room, held her tight and attempted to unwrap his towel but again the victim pushed him away.     It alleged that on the same night after the departure of his girlfriend,  Arinaitwe followed the victim to the bedroom and forcefully had unprotected sex with the victim.

“On 18th/07/2023, while in possession of a pistol, the accused person found the victim in the sitting watching TV and ordered her to lie on the long sofa set and had sex with her and thereafter he left...that on the several times the victim had forceful sexual intercourse with the accused person, she managed to see his uncircumcised penis,” reads the documents.     

Arinaitwe rose to the limelight after he infamously pepper-sprayed opposition doyen Dr Kizza Besigye after smashing the window of his car with a pistol in 2011 ago at Mulago roundabout. 

He later became a self-proclaimed pastor, suffered and recovered from mental health issues.
