A man in Kayunga District has been sentenced to life imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to charges of human sacrifice.
Hassan Isiiko, a resident of Bulyankuyege in Buyoba Kayunga district was on Monday sentenced to life imprisonment by the Mukono High court Judge, Ms Margaret Mutonyi, after he pleaded guilty to have sacrificed his neighbor Yakobo Kayizzi 84.
Prosecution led by Ms Ann Kabajugu told court that the accused committed the offence on 24th/5/2013,that Isiiko went to deceased’s home and found him busy sorting beans then the accused pretended to be helping him and hit him on the head with a big stick which left him in a bad condition.
Prosecution also told court that Isiiko then cut off the deceased’s head and private parts and took off abandoning the the body in the home alone.
Isiiko pleaded guilty and asked court to forgive him claiming that he thought he would get riches.
While giving her sentence justice Mutonyi said that what Isiiko did is a bad and dangerous act so Isiiko is not fit to stay in community therefore he is supposed to be kept away from people to show as an example.
Justice Mutonyi also said that human sacrifice does not make one rich but rather miserable in life.
