High Court Judge justice Owiny-Dollo has sentence one of the 2010 Kampala bombers to one year of community service.

Court found Muzafar Luyima guilty of being an accessory to terrorism after the fact, sentenced to 1 year of community service.

He will be serving his 1 year community service sentence for 2 days per week.

He was part of the eight people who were convicted of terrorism offences yesterday.

Muzafar has been in prison for 6 years.

High Court then adjourned the session until 3pm when Justice Owiny-Dollo will deliver sentences to the remaining seven convicts.

Muhamoud Mugisha, 24, pleaded guilty and was also sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for conspiring to commit terrorism.

Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the 2010 Kampala blasts as retaliation for Ugandan support for AMISOM.

The trial of the 13 Uganda, Kenyan and Tanzanian suspects started in March 2015 at the High Court of Uganda.

On July 11, 2010, first bomb went off at Ethiopian Village restaurant in Kabalagala. Fifteen people died in this attack.
