The research found out that teachers, fishermen, bodaboda cyclists, relatives, neighbours, schoolmates, parents and pastors are the perpetrators of defilement in Uganda. It is believed that defilement has been encouraged by lack of public awareness, corruption, increased poverty and the emergence of more teachers with passion. It is also found out that there is no effectiveness in handling defilement cases by police, children are not talked to by the schools and parents. Therefore, the relationship between police and community has become poor.
