A man has been sentenced to 17 years imprisonment for defiling his 9 year old Niece and infected her with HIV/AIDS.
Kampala High Court Judge Alex Ajiji convicted David Kayondo a resident of Nakulabye Hozana zone- Rubaga Division in Kampala District, on his own plea of guilty to an offence of aggravated defilement, and asked for a lenient punishment.
Prosecution led by Nyanzi Gladys says that Kayondo used to sexually abuse his Sister’s daughter whenever she was away for work, in May/2015, well knowing that he was HIV positive.
According to the victim, her uncle threatened to harm her if she told anyone, but on 25th/June/2015 due to much pain the victim revealed the incident to a neighbor who informed the victim’s mother, and 27year old Kayondo was arrested.
While sentencing him Justice Ajiji said that Kayondo needs to be kept away from circulation for his beastily acts.
