A-20-YEAR-OLD paternal uncle has been sent to prison for eight years after the High Court found him guilty of defiling his 10-year-old niece.
Justice Moses Mukiibi convicted Godfrey Ssozi yesterday, saying he had been convinced that the victim was a truthful witness despite her age.
Mukiibi said the prosecution had proved its case beyond reasonable doubt and the victim’s evidence had been corroborated by other witnesses.
The judge also agreed with the State Attorney, Josephine Namatovu, that the victim had properly identified Ssozi as her paternal uncle, who defiled her in broad daylight.
Namatovu said Ssozi, who should have protected the victim as an uncle, turned against her in such a cruel and shameless manner.
Ssozi caused laughter when he asked court to pass a lenient sentence to enable him come out early enough to develop himself and enjoy life.
