Photo: Ugandan student in critical condition after she jumped from 4th floor of hostel to escape rape

A second-year female student of Makerere University sustained multiple fractures and injuries last Friday evening after she jumped through the window from the 4th floor of Mitchell hall to allegedly escape from being raped by a man identified as Jeremiah Mukyemu, a 4th year medical student.


Mukyemu was subsequently arrested and is now under police custody for attempted murder after he tried to access the victim at Mulago hospital where she is now admitted.

The victim, reportedly jumped out of Mukyemu’s room, B47 on the fourth floor to escape from being raped. It is alleged that Mukyemu first locked the victim in his room for more than two hours before he alleged tried to force himself unto her. 

With no help forthcoming, even after shouting “rape”, the female student of Drama and Film, decided to jump through the window, sustaining multiple fractures and head injuries.

Police has preferred charges of attempted murder against Mukyemu at Mulago police station.
Jude Masingano, the officer in charge of operations at Makerere University has confirmed the arrest of the suspect, saying several charges have been preferred against him.

Paul Kato, the Makerere University guild president-elect, says the student decided to exit Mukyemu’s room through the window after pleading with him to let her go for a very longtime in vain.
"I condemn what happened to the young girl. We all don't know the intentions of the male friend locking her up. But it's unfortunate for one to lock up their guests in a room for more than two hours," Kato said. By the time I visited our sister at Mulago hospital around 10pm, she was responding to treatment." he added.

I don't understand this. Ladies should stop visiting guys alone if they don't want to have sex. My Palee dey talk say man and woman no dey play. What was her intension of going there alone? Even if they are friends or course mate, it won't be all about reading the bible. I pray she heals.

To prefer a charge is correct in legal terminology. Usually, the state being the prosecutor "prefers" a charge against the accused or defendant while the complainant or victim "presses" a charge.
