Man Gets 45 Years In Prison For Sodomizing Juveniles

Court in Kampala has sentenced a man to 45 years in prison after being convicted of sodomizing four male juveniles. Two of the boys are aged 8, one is 9 years old and the other is 13 years old. The offender is Twesigye Simon, 27, also known as Tadius.

While sentencing him, High Court Judge Michael Elubu explained that the convict is a sexual predator. He further said that Tadius’ actions will leave a long-term effect as well as trauma on his victims.

The prosecution affirmed that between 2016 to July 2019, Twesigye performed homosexual acts on the four juveniles.

This happened at Kamwokya Church Zone in Kampala District where he lived with the victims. The offender earned a living in the same area through the sell of water, soda and passion fruit juice.

According to the court ruling, the prosecution proved beyond reasonable doubt that the victims were below the age of 14 at the time.

“From his demeanor and consistency of evidence, this court has no doubt that *M.R (not real names) was a reliable witness telling the truth. Besides the evidence followed a constant pattern with the testimony of *A.O who said the accused always called a number of his friends into the room,” Justice Elubu ruled.

Twesigye also claimed that one of the victims’ sister held a grudge against him for denying her a job at his shop. This, therefore, led her to frame him.

However, the judge dismissed these claims reasoning that they are afterthoughts and false since no witness mentioned the grudge.

The judge further noted that the convict’s arrest came at a time when he tried to escape, which is not an innocent person’s conduct.

The prosecution led by Mr Timothy Amerit had asked the court for life imprisonment during mitigation. They sought this because such actions are very rampant and the victims were only juveniles.
