High Court judge Jane Francis Abodo yesterday convicted 37 year Godfrey Sengendo for raping a 70 year old woman
The court found the suspect guilty after evaluating evidence by all prosecution witnesses, which proved beyond reasonable doubt that it was Sengendo who raped the woman.
The victim, court heard, was Ssengendo’s boss for whom he reared her animals.
Prosecution contends that the convict carried out the crime on November 26th 2015 in her house located in Jagala Village, Gombe Sub County in Wakiso District
While convicting the suspect, Justice Abodo relied on the testimony of many witnesses including the victim, who informed court that she recognized his face and voice as he pulled her dread locks and warned her not to say anything.
All this, she said, happened at midnight when Ssengendo broke into her house.
She added that she tried to discourage the attacker by telling her that she was HV Positive but he carried on with the act.
The case was adjourned to December 14, 2018 when Justice Abodo will give her judgement.
