A court in Luweero, in central Uganda, has sentenced a 42-year-old grandfather to 60 years in jail for raping three of his grandchildren and infecting them with HIV/Aids. A report on the eNCA site notes that the High Court heard that Kiyanda resident Joseph Ssemuwemba raped the girls who were between nine and 12 in 2015 while they were at his home. Justice Anna Mugenyi relied on well-collaborated prosecution evidence, medical reports and victim evidence before passing the sentence.
