Buganda Road Court has found former Sports Club Villa manager, Chris Mubiru, guilty of sodomy.
Buganda Road Chief magistrate, Flavia Nabakooza, found Mubiru guilty of having carnal knowledge of his victim, Emmanuel Nyanzi.
Prosecution alleges that in December 2009, while at Mengo Kisingiri LCI, a Kampala suburb, Mubiru had sexual relations with Nyanzi and others against the order of nature, an offence contrary to section 145 (a) of penal code act.
He was arrested on December 15, 2009 and detained at Katwe police station for interrogations before he was charged at Buganda Road court.
Nabakooza said prosecution had provided enough evidence to prove their case basing on the exhibits recovered from Mubiru’s home.
Among them are dermatological creams which are used by homosexuals to ease anal penetration and pain killers used to reduce the pain associated with anal sexual intercourse.
Apparently, Mubiru drugged Nyanzi with chloroform before sodomising him.
Mubiru was, nonetheless, acquitted on the second count of sodomy on grounds that his other victim, George Oundo consented to the act.
Nabakooza cancelled Mubiru’s bail and remanded him to Luzira until September 18, 2015 when he will return for sentencing.
He faces about 18 years in prison.
