A 12-year-old girl has been hospitalised at Iganga main hospital after she was allegedly gang-raped by five men.

The gang reportedly attacked her when she was returning home after rearing cattle.

She told local media that the gang threatened to kill her if she made an alarm.

After medical examinations, an orange was found inside her private parts.

Medical officers also said they found semen residues in the girl's genital.


The father of the 12-year-old girl said the high rate of drug abuse in the area is causing the increase of such cases.

He also blamed the police of failing to crackdown against rape and child abuse.

Authorities have since started investigations but no suspects have been apprehended yet.
