KAMPALA - A series of video clips featuring former Uganda Cranes football manager, Christopher Mubiru Kisingiri, having sex with young boys and girls were shown in court on Thursday.

The footage, displayed in bits and lasting about five minutes within closed chambers, revealed the ex-manager engaged in acts of sodomy.

The video clips were submitted to Buganda road magistrate’s court by Arising for Christ Ministry pastor, Moses Male.

Mubiru was arrested on December 15 last year over the acts and later released on police bond a week later.

Prosecution, led by Lillian Omara, alleges that Mubiru had canal knowledge with a boy “against the order of nature” – sodomy – a crime punishable by 18 years in jail on conviction.

The incident in question is said to have occurred in December 2009 in Mengo, Kampala.

Speaking before court as the second witness, Pastor Male, 56, revealed that the boy confessed to him that Mubiru had sodomized him.

Promises

Court, presided over by Lillian Buchyana, heard that the former national team manager had promised the boy a job abroad, sponsorship, money and cars if he slept with him.

Male said: “Mubiru met the victim and promised to introduce him to his family and take care of him.”

The pastor said the boy and another victim told him what they had gone through during the process of counseling.

The accused, also a former Sports Club Villa manager, turned up in court on Thursday wearing a striped purple shirt and black trousers.

According to Male, Mubiru invited one of the victims for a party at his residence in Mengo. After eating and drinking, he told court, the boy lost consciousness, only to wake up hours later with his rear outlet sore and oozing blood.

As he was cross-examined by lawyer Anthony Kaweesi, the city pastor said the victim went for treatment and that was when he was checked and confirmed to have been sodomized.

The victims, he revealed, told him during counseling that they feared to expose Mubiru’s acts because he had told them he had connections with security operatives including soldiers.

It is understood the pastor was approached by the victims after a talk show on local media.

The case was adjourned until August 21 – three weeks away – for further hearing.
