The High Court in Luwero has sentenced a domestic servant to life imprisonment for raping his 78-year-old mistress. The woman later died from the injuries that were inflicted on her during the incident.
Justice Benjamin Kabiito convicted Isaac Bulani, 34, a resident of Nkozi village in Nakaseke district during a High Court session on Monday. Bulani was also sentenced to another 15 years for manslaughter.
Prosecution told court that at around 10:00pm on April 5, 2007, Bulani raped Victoria Nabagesera whom he found at her home.
The victim, who sustained a fracture of the thigh bone during the attack, died of internal bleeding at Nakaseke Hospital four days later.
Nabageseraâ€™s son, Lawrence Musisi, said he found her at her home lying on the ground with her clothes lifted to the thighs. Nabagesera told him that Bulani had raped her.
