Kampala Court has convicted Chris Mubiru of sodomy


Buganda Road Chief magistrate Flavia Nabakooza also found Mubiru guilty of having carnal knowledge of his victim, Emmanuel Nyanzi, adding that prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt.
Ms Nabakooza grounded her ruling on the evidence from the prosecution side, which she said was sufficient to pin Mubiru.
Earlier on, a senior government analyst as the last state witness, told court that the exhibits recovered from Mubiru’s home were similar to the devices used in committing sodomy.

Court heard that in December 2009, while at Mengo Kisingiri LCI, a Kampala suburb, Mubiru had sexual relations with Nyanzi and others against the order of nature, an offence contrary to section 145(a) of penal code act.
He was arrested on December 15, 2009 and detained at Katwe police station for interrogations before he was charged at Buganda Road court.
The crime is punishable with 18 years in prison on conviction. The magistrate also cancelled Mubiru’s bail and remanded him to Luzira before she adjourned the case to September 18 for sentencing.
