Bugolobi Boy Kakama's Killer Gets 30 Years Jail Sentence
Nakawa High Court Judge Faith Mwondha has Monday sentenced the killer of one-year-old baby Khan Kakama to 30 years in jail.
Gordon Tumusiime was sent to Luzira Prison after pleading guilty to charges of murder.
Kakama’s relatives told Chimp Corps justice had been done.
Born to URA employee Sven Karekaho and Naome Karekeho, Kakama was kidnapped from Bugolobi Flats on June 8 2010.
His lifeless body was later found in sisal sack in a Kamwokya swamp on June 13, an incident that riled the nation.
Tumusiime, his co-accused Brian Sajjabi and Molly Nabaasa, were later arrested over the murder.
They reportedly colluded in extorting Shs30m from Kakama’s father as ransom for the release of the baby.
Surprisingly, after getting the cash, they mercilessly took Kakama’s precious life.
Nabaasa and Sajjabi have consistently denied murder charges. They will face trial, starting July 16.
Mwondha said Tumusiime deserved a death sentence.
“But I have decided to give Tumusiime a lenient sentence because he is a first offender and has been in jail for two years. He never wasted court’s time. He pleaded guilty,” ruled Mwondha.
