Sodomy master Chris Mubiru set free by High Court


By our reporter

High Court justice Wilson Musene Masalu has on this morning set sodomy convict and former Cranes manager Chris Mubiru free after faulting the magistrate’s court of wrongly convicting him.

Buganda road court chief magistrate Lilian Buchana last year had convicted Mubiru and sentenced him to 10 years imprisonment after being found guilty of sodomy. The convict was also ordered pay Shs 50million to the victim.

Mubiru this year appealed at the High court against the sentence, saying the trial magistrate erred when he considered evidence from a video which had not been tendered in court.

In his judgment on this morning, Justice Masalu ruled further that it was wrong for the victim not to report to police, having been sodomized in 2009 and waited in 2013 when many years had already passed.

“He should have done it when it was still hot and not in 2013 to pastor Solomon Male,” the judge said.
