‘I Saw My Zip Opening By Itself’ – Imam Jailed For Defiling 2-year-old Girl
The High Court sitting in Mukono, Uganda, has sentenced a 63-year-old Imam with 3 wives to life imprisonment, for defiling a two-year-old girl.
Musa Mulo, an Imam at Kibubbu Mosque, was convicted after pleading guilty.
The state prosecutor, Ms Janat Kitimbo, told court that Imam Mulo sexually tormented the toddler in 2012 and that on the fateful day, the victim went alone to Mulo’s home in the neighbourhood.
Mulo grabbed her in his compound and took her into the house where he defiled her and damaged her private parts. The Imam later told her to go back home.
At the commencement of the trial on Friday, the imam said
“I carried that child, put her on my laps and I just saw my zip opening by itself,”
Justice Ms Margaret Mutonyi observed that Mulo is not fit to be an imam or live in society. She described him as “a dangerous person” who is supposed to be kept away from children. She then sentenced him to life imprisonment.
Meanwhile,upon his arrest, it was learnt that,a group of Muslims stormed Nalumasi’s home and destroyed her property, claiming she had framed Musa Mulo, their religious leader.
