ABSTRACT

The research on "analyzing the law of defilement was done in Uganda. The

study was guided by the research objectives. The objectives included: to

analyze the legal framework in controlling girl child defilement; to examine the

causes of defilement in Uganda; to suggest strategies that can be put in place

to improve on the control of girl child defilement; to examine the effects of

defilement among girls in Uganda. The study found that most girls are defiled

between the age of 12-17 years, and others at 0-9 years. Defilers cut across all

statuses which include teachers, relatives, both biological and step fathers,

clergy, boda boda riders, taxi drivers, domestic employees university students,

fellow students and many other categories. Most people are aware of the law on defilement and its punishments. The study concluded, there is need for collective action of government, communities, churches, media, private sector and NGO's on girl child defilement problem. This is because that, the challenges is that no single strategy or organization can tackle defilement be it law, awareness campaigns and other strategy that can solve the issue in isolation with others.
