A traditional witchdoctor, Lawrence Kanwagi, has been sentenced to 10 years in jail for defilement.
Justice Vincent Kibuuka Musoke found Kanwagi guilty of raping Tereza Nakintu Kyakuwa, 54, at her home in Lwebitakuli sub-county, Ssembabule district in 2005.
Court heard that Kanwagi attacked his victim at 3:00am, cut her left arm and dragged her to a banana plantation where he raped her.
CAO orders project probe
The chief administrative officer (CAO), Nelson Kirenda, has ordered a special audit into a botched pineapple project.
The district last year contracted Genuine Contractors to supply pineapple suckers to farmers in the district at sh60m, but only a few farmers and councillors got the plants worth sh20m.
