Former SC Villa and Uganda Cranes manager Chris Mubiru has appealed against the 10 year jail term handed to him on 18th September after he was convicted of sodomizing a young boy.
Mubiru today filed a notice of appeal before High Court in Kampala indicating that he is dissatisfied with both conviction and sentence.
Mubiru was convicted and sentenced by Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate Flavia Nabakooza who also ordered him to compensate the victim with 50m shillings.
Mubiru’s conviction was based on evidence from five prosecution witnesses which was corroborated with that of the investigating officer who found sodomy kits in his house.
The victim who is now 23 was 17years at the time of commission of the offence
