The Iganga High Court found a man guilty of killing a five-year-old boy in a ritual sacrifice and sentenced him to 52 years in prison.

Judge David Batema sentenced Hassan Kafudde to 52 years in prison. Issa Muyita, the deceased’s father, received a 25-year sentence for the 2017 murder of Juma Muyita, a 5-year-old student at Kawempe’s Mirembe Junior School.
