Buganda Road Court in Kampala, Uganda, has sentenced the former soccer manager of the team Uganda Cranes, Christopher Mubiru Kisingiri, to 10 years in prison and ordered him to pay restitution of fifty million Ugandan Shillings, approximately $14,000 USD.
In the highly controversial case, Mubiru was found guilty of having carnal knowledge, committing an act against order of nature, contrary to Section 145(a) of the Penal Code Act, with an 18 year old, Emmanuel Nyanzi.
The court found that the act was not consensual as Nyanzi was apparently drugged. Mubiru was found innocent in a second charge, with another man, where the act was apparently consensual.
Mubiru has been given leave to appeal the sentence by the Court.
MUBIRU was convicted earlier this month – READ MORE.
