Ugandan Police in Mukono District have arrested who ply his business as boda boda rider (Wa Kabaza) on allegations of raping his female passengers.

Asumani Owere, a 30-year-old in Buikwe District is accused of targeting his unsuspecting passengers and raping them in isolated areas after putting them on knife point.

“Owere is also alleged to have robbed his victims of their belongings after raping them. Seven rape victims have reported cases at police where two of the victims have positively identified Owere as their attacker,” police said in a statement.

Owere is not the first Ugandan Kabaza rider to be accused of raping passengers.

In May 2018, police in the country’s capital, Kampala arrested a 29-year-old kabaza rider for allegedly raping his 19-year-old passenger, a German national.

The teenager had reportedly sought motorcycle services from the suspect, to ride from a bar in Kololo to her residence in Buziga when he instead took an opposite route.

His route would lead him to a bushy area in Kawanda, Kawempe where he allegedly abused his passenger by having canal knowledge with her and also robbing her of $1200.

Amidst the scuffle however, the victim noted the motorcycle registration number as UDR 472B which police used to trace, identify and apprehend the suspect.

The suspect told police that he always had sexual fantasies and desire of having canal knowledge with female whites and saw this as a God sent opportunity.
