Mao Slams Ruling Exonerating Pakistani Sodomy Suspects

Opposition Democratic Party President, treat buy more about Norbert Mao has called upon the State to appeal the Buganda Road Court ruling that saw the Chief Magistrate, Lilian Buchana free two Pakistan Nationals who were accused of domestic violence and sodomizing their maid, Zainabu Mbabazi.

“The exoneration of these Pakistan Nationals against whom there was clear and enough evidence to have them convicted was miscarriage of justice and I hope the state will appeal the ruling,” Mao told the press at the party headquarters in Kampala.

Mao noted that it is so bad that the courts of law that are supposed to offer justice and fight for the week are instead turning not to be helpful.

He added that this may prompt people to take the law into their own hands once they fail to achieve justice.

“Once there is no rule of law, this calls for mob-rule,” Mao further told the press.

Ahmeed Shahbz and Muhammad Wagaf were early this year charged with gang rape of Mbabazi who served as their maid but in April the Director of Public Prosecution dropped the charges replacing them with domestic violence and having canal knowledge against order of nature before being granted bail.

In her judgment, Buchana on Monday December, 22nd said that evidence produced failed to prove that there was any act of sodomy against the maid, stressing that reports by doctors indicated that the anus and rectus muscles functioned normally contrally to what Mbabazi had earlier told court.

According to the Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate, in her evidence, the 23-year old maid said she had been to different clinics in Ntinda and Mulago Referral hospital where she had been admitted for more than a month but the clinics’ reports were not tendered in to court.
