40yr-old man sentenced to death for infecting daughter with HIV

The High Court in Kampala has sentenced to death a 40-year-old man for defiling and infecting his daughter with HIV/Aids.
High Court Judge Elizabeth Kibula Kabanda handed Denis Ssebugwaawo the sentence after finding him guilty.
Prosecution said on January 21, 2013 at Kinaawa village in Wakiso District, Ssebugwaawo defiled his 12-year-old daughter.
“I am convinced that the prosecution has proved every ingredient of the offence of aggravated defilement beyond reasonable doubt. Looking at the evidence of the medical examination of the victim together with the convict’s plain denial that he knew the victim was defiled, I take it that his defence is utter lies,” Justice Kabanda said.
She also noted that Ssebugwaawa threatened to cut the victim in case she told anyone.
Court heard that during the month of January 2013, Ssebugwaawo sent away his other family members. On the fateful night, both victim and convict stayed in the house together. She was noticed by a neighbor the next day walking while widening her legs and upon interrogation; she revealed that Ssebugwaawo had slept on her.
Ssebugwaawo was arrested from the same house he had committed the crime and taken into detention at Natete Police Station where he admitted being the biological father of the victim.
