I was assaulted holding my baby girl

It happened in Kiswa, Bugolobi. I had gone to the shops to buy something, and walking back, I had my baby daughter on my back. A man was coming towards me. He looked like a decent person. The sort I would say ‘Good afternoon’ to in passing.

Then something terrible happened. He stopped in front of me, blocking my path. And then he placed both his hands on my breasts and grabbed them tight. I could not drop my baby.

This was in broad daylight but no one did anything. No one helped me. After a few seconds, smiling, he let go and walked away.

I had no tears. I was in shock. I had no emotions at all.
