Published on


On 10th August 2022 a video went viral on the internet showing a young girl who was being removed from a Boda Boda and forcefully put in a car as she cried for help allegedly being taken to marriage against her will.

The Girl was later identified as Naome a senior two student in Mukabuta Kibaati in Kyotera District who had reported home for holidays and was being forcefully married off to a man against her wish.

After calls from various social media users to help the girl, Police responded in time and managed to rescue the girl.

According to witnesses, Naome, 15 is an orphan who has been under the patronage of her uncles.

After she reported home for holidays, she found that her uncles, working closely with her mum had arranged for her a suitor asking her to accept the marriage proposal.

Having refused, she was forcefully put into a car and sent to man’s home as she cried for help.

By the time the Crime Investigations Department (CID) officers arrived at the home of her captors, they found she hadn’t been sexually abused as her Auntie was still around trying to negotiate with her to accept marriage.

Police CID Boss Dr. Tom Magambo said that all those who were involved in the act off marrying of under aged girl and more so against her will have been identified and will be arrested.

‘Okusitura’ was a common act among Western Uganda people especially Banyankore and Bakiga, women would be kidnapped and taken into marriage only for the captors turned suitors to appear after a month to introduce themselves to the girl’s family when she’s already pregnant.

The act had however phased out in this modern era and it is disgusting to see such a barbaric act surviving into modern era.
