A High Court in Mukono, Uganda, has sentenced a 63-year-old Imam with 3 wives to life imprisonment for defiling a two-year-old girl.
Musa Mulo, an Imam at Kibubbu Mosque, was convicted upon his own plea of guilt.
At the commencement of the trial on Friday, the imam pleaded guilty to defiling the girl. He said “I carried that child, put her on my laps and I just saw my zip opening by itself”.
The state prosecutor, Ms Janat Kitimbo, told the court that Imam Mulo sexually tormented the toddler in 2012. Prosecution submitted that on that fateful day, the victim went alone to Mulo’s home in the neighbourhood.
