High court in Bushenyi on Thursday 18th October 2018 sentenced 26 year old man to death over murder.
Court led by Mbarara resident judge Dr. Zeija Flavian heard that Rutahumura Johnbosco while in Rwomushojwa village, Kashenyi parish, Rwengwe Subcounty Buhweju district strangled, killed and buried his one year child only identified as Kelvin in a suit case behind his house.
Prosecutions stated that at police in his statement John Bosco revealed that his child died nature death though postmortem proved that it had been strangled and it released feaces.
Although the convict pleaded not guilty, court convicted him of murder and sentenced to death.
Delivering his judgment, Dr. Zeija said that the convict killed an innocent child as if it was an animal so he also deserves to die like an animal. He also noted that this should send a message to the public that murder is bad and still prohibited in Uganda
