A nursing assistant allegedly drugged a female patient before raping and impregnating her.
According to Ugandan Newspaper, Daily Monitor, Samuel Tumukuratire (29) confessed to having raped many of his patients at the Najeera hospital, north of Kampala, using the same method.
He would first insist they had HIV tests before sedating and raping them.
In the case of the woman whose alleged rape lead to him being charged, she only figured out she must have been raped when she realised three months after her stay in hospital that she was pregnant.
She was especially amazed because her husband worked overseas at the time and she hadn’t had sex for a year.
Tumukuratire was confronted by cops during their investigation and confessed to sedating and raping the woman.
He has not yet pleaded and his case is due to be heard at the High Court on 18 August.
