Six pupils have pinned their headteacher for sodomising them on several occasions.
Mpagi Didas alias Bakulu, the headteacher of Real Infant Primary School in Wakiso district is accused of sodomising the children between 2016 and 2019.
Mpagi on Thursday appeared before the International Crimes Division Judge, Justice David Wangutusi on charges of aggravated defilement.
According to the prosecution, the victims were required to sleep naked and Mpagi would then fondle the genitals of the victims with his fingers and thereafter he practice oral and penetrative anal sex on them.
The children who were aged between 10 years and 16 years when the crime was committed told the court that Mpagi who was also a Youth Pastor admitted them on a bursary scheme and threatened to withdraw it if they refused to sleep with him or reported the matter.
The prosecution notes that the headteacher who also used to work as a warden at the school would reportedly sleep with each of the victims in the dormitory where he also often slept.
Court heard that due to Mpagi’s actions, the victims felt pain in the stomach and buttocks and found it hard to pass urine and faeces normally. The prosecution further states that the head teacher would intimidate the boys whenever they complained about his actions.
“He also threatened them that being a pastor and a man of God, he could easily know in case they reported the incident to anyone and this forced the victims to remain in a system of sexual exploitation and constant fear”, reads the case summary.
The case was adjourned to June 8 for further hearing. Mpagi is facing 12 charges related to aggravated defilement and trafficking in children.
Mpagi was remanded to Kitalya government prison.
