High court rejects bail application for defiler

The High court in Kampala rejects a bail application of a 30 year old man who allegedly defiled his 15 year old daughter.

Court heard that the victim was also born as a result of a relationship Mohammad Balikyewunya Seggwanga had with his sister.

Justice Rugadya Atwooki dismissed his bail application on grounds that the sureties were not substantial enough and that the accused person could interfere with evidence since the victim is a minor, and that his HIV positive status can be taken care of while in prison.
