Man Convicted To 15yrs In Jail for Cutting Off Girl’s Hand

By Shadrach Bethel,

Derick Kuloba, a resident of Bududa district has earned himself a 15-year-jail term for attempted murder.

The Bubulo Chief Magistrate Esther Nalungi sentenced Kuloba on Tuesday after finding him guilty of attempted murder when he chopped off the hand of 16-year-old Evelyn Namasopo, a former student of Bushiyi Christian Secondary School and resident of Nabweya sub-county, Bududa district.

The prosecution told court that Kuloba attacked the victim near a forest on her way home to pick food for her sick mother who had been admitted to one of the health facilities in the district in July last year. The convict reportedly attacked Namasopo for rejecting his marriage proposal.

In her judgment, Nalungi sentenced Kuloba to 15 years in jail on grounds that he wasted the court’s time and didn’t show any remorse for his action. She noted that the 15-year-jail term will help the convict to reform and return to society a better person.
