How teacher Ssenfuma was lured into visiting his female student

Police have in custody a 40-year-old male teacher who was busted seducing his 15-year-old student over WhatsApp and the guardian lured him into visiting the student.

According to ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy public relations officer for Kampala Metropolitan Police, John Ssenfuma Kato, was arrested by the Kanyanya Territorial Police.


Ssenfuma, 40, who teaches at a school in Mityana and resides in Mukono District, was apprehended on allegations of attempting to defile a 15-year-old girl, a student at the same school where he teaches.

The arrest follows a complaint lodged by Sheilah, 26, who resides in Kyebando Erisa Zone in Kawempe Division, Kampala District, and is the guardian of the 15-year-old student.

According to the police spokesman, Sheilah reported that the family became aware of Ssenfuma’s communication with the juvenile through WhatsApp, prompting his invitation to their premises.

On January 13, 2024, Ssenfuma traveled to the designated venue and was subsequently apprehended upon arrival. An examination by a Police surgeon confirmed the well-being of the victim, as the intended activity did not transpire.

The case file has been submitted to the office of the Resident State Attorney, and the Kanyanya Police has received guidance on the next steps. The file is pending resubmission for sanctioning, and the suspect will face charges as determined by the Prosecution.

According to Luke Owoyesigyire, further details will be provided in due course. Meanwhile, the incident has since gone viral on social media and netizens are calling for harsh punishments against the teacher.
