Man Sentenced to 52 Years for Ritual Sacrifice Killing of 5-Year-Old Boy

In a significant verdict, the High Court in Iganga has handed down a 52-year prison sentence to a man found guilty of committing the gruesome murder of a five-year-old boy as part of a ritual sacrifice.

Justice David Batema presided over the case, and the accused, Hassan Kafudde, was given a lengthy imprisonment term. Additionally, Issa Muyita, the father of the deceased child, was sentenced to 25 years for his involvement in the killing of Juma Muyita, a five-year-old pupil at Mirembe Junior School in Kawempe in 2017.

Justice Batema, in his ruling, underscored the importance of the sentence as a deterrent to potential offenders who might contemplate such heinous acts.

Lumumba Amin Criticizes President Museveni’s Rejection of Idi Amin Institute Proposal

Lumumba Amin, the son of the late former President of Uganda, Idi Amin Dada, has responded to President Museveni’s letter rejecting the establishment of the proposed Idi Amin Institute, referring to it as “idiotic.”

In a letter to his wife, Janet Museveni, who serves as the Minister of Education and Sports, President Museveni strongly advised against the creation of an institute in honor of Idi Amin. He cited a letter from Dr. Kagume, the head of the National Council of Higher Education, which addressed MP Kaps Hassan Fungaroo’s proposal for such an institute as a tribute to the late president.

Museveni contended that there is nothing worth commemorating about Idi Amin’s regime, as it was unconstitutional. He believed that the forgiveness extended to Amin’s associates by Ugandans is sufficient, and it is time to move on from that history.

Lumumba Amin expressed disbelief that such a letter was authored by the President and asked for clarification regarding its origin. He challenged President Museveni to specify the legal basis for his directive. Furthermore, Lumumba criticized the President, likening his tone to that of an irate, incompetent individual expressing personal grievances from a government office.

He stated, “First of all, the letter is simply idiotic. I genuinely even doubted that such Fake news was actually written by you. Please clarify!”

Lumumba emphasized that the Amin family is not connected to this request and accused it of being a political scheme aimed at exploiting government funds in the coming financial years.

Surprisingly, Lumumba raised questions about President Museveni’s involvement in a 1973 incident, where he was reportedly driving a Volkswagen that eyewitnesses claimed had been used in the abduction of the then Chief Justice and Prime Minister, Benedicto Kiwanukka.

In Kanyacucu Village, Busengo Parish, Nyarubuye Sub County, Kisoro District, the Bakunzi Nizeyimana family is living through a nightmare, fearing for the life and safety of their 10-year-old son, John Mary Irakunda, a student at Nsungwe Primary School. John Mary was abducted by a 20-year-old Congolese laborer named Hakiza, and the family is now desperately trying to secure his release.

Moses Bakunzi, the father, revealed the harrowing details of the abduction. On the ominous day of October 22, 2023, their world was shattered as his son mysteriously disappeared, along with Hakiza, whom they had employed as a casual laborer nearly a month prior.

The kidnapper, Hakiza, has left the Bakunzi family in a state of terror. He made contact using a mobile phone belonging to Bakunzi’s sister-in-law (0772-566541), demanding a colossal sum of UGX 8 million as ransom for the release of young John Mary Irankunda.

Ministry of Luwero-Ruwenzori Triangle Donates Iron Sheets to Schools Affected by Rain Damage

The Ministry of Luwero-Ruwenzori Triangle has contributed 6,954 iron sheets to aid schools whose roofs were either damaged by heavy rains or had deteriorated over time.

Nineteen primary schools in Luwero district and thirteen in Nakaseke District were beneficiaries of this donation. Notable among the recipient schools were Ngoma Church of Uganda, Bujubya, Bukalabi, Mayirikiti, Mifunya, Lumpewe, Kifampa, and Kituntu primary schools in Nakaseke. In Luwero district, schools such as Butuntumula, Kyanukuzi, Luwero Boys, Manywa Blue, Kasaala Girls, Wakatayi, Wobulenzi UMEA, Wobulenzi Public School, and Star Junior Academy were among those that received assistance.

James Tumuhairwe Ninsiima, the headteacher of Ngoma Church of Uganda Primary School, shared that a classroom block, devastated by a storm fifteen years ago, has remained unrepaired, forcing students to study under trees or in shared classes. The school received 400 iron sheets, allowing them to start renovating the block and accommodate around 800 students.

Ignatius Koomu Kiwanuka, the LCV Chairperson of Nakaseke district, revealed that some schools had constructed new classroom blocks but couldn’t afford to roof them. The distribution of iron sheets aimed to support such schools in completing these structures.

Koomu also emphasized the urgency of renovating old schools, highlighting the risk of dilapidated structures collapsing due to heavy rains, potentially endangering the lives of students.

Burton Bbumba, the headteacher of Luwero Boys Primary School, expressed relief at receiving 200 iron sheets. The school plans to use them to replace old sheets and ensure a conducive learning environment, especially during the rainy season.

Florence Bbosa from Luwero District Education explained that due to budget shortfalls, the district had been able to construct classroom blocks in only a limited number of schools each financial year. The donation of iron sheets is anticipated to help mitigate classroom shortages in the district.

During the distribution in Luwero town council, State Minister Alice Kaboyo, in charge of Luwero Triangle, launched the initiative. She emphasized the sheets were to be used exclusively for roofing classroom blocks and revealed that private schools would also benefit from this aid.

The Ministry procured a total of 8,874 iron sheets at a cost of 631 million shillings, intending to donate them not only to schools but also to veterans in need.
