Chief Magistrate Julius Bulule said he was lenient in handing down the sentence, arguing the accused were first time offenders.

The judge said his ruling was premised on testimonies given by witnesses whom the Pastors had claimed were sodomised by Kayanja.

The ruling ends the dramatic and sometimes controversial trial, with witnesses being accused of accepting bribes to change positions.

Chimpreports early this month exclusively reported that John Mutumba and Robson Matovu, two of the young men who had in 2011 come to Buganda Road and testified that Pastors, Male, Sempa and others conspired to tarnish Kayanja’s image by linking him to homosexuality practices, had turned around and denied these statements.

They even posted these videos on You Tube but were later pulled down after Kayanja’s officials reportedly complained to the social website.

In the videos, both admitted giving false evidence against the anti-sodomy Pastors in court and apologized to them.

They alleged that the pastors and co-accused were innocent before reiterating they were indeed sodomised by Pr Robert Kayanja.

The videos were delivered to police in a case registered as KMP/CID/GEF 144/2012.

Male recently petitioned the Principle Judge Yorokamu Bamwine to intervene in a case where he and colleagues were denied an opportunity to recall witnesses to give more evidence to pin Kayanja in sodomy acts.

Bamwiine rejected their plea.
