Bethel | 95timefm


Two people including a top ADF commander have been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment each by the International Crimes Division of the High Court in Kampala after willingly admitting to being part of the rebel and terrorist group.

Ibrahim Ssemwanga and Aisha Nalweyiso were sentenced after pleading guilty to charges of aiding and abetting terrorism and belonging to ADF, a terrorist organization.

When trial started at the International Crimes Division of the High Court in Kampala, prosecution led by Chief State Attorney Lillian Omara and Senior State Attorney Jacquelyn Okui lined up seven witnesses to pin the duo.

However, Ssemwanga and Nalweyiso opted to plead guilty to the charges preferred against them and having listened to the pleas of guilty by the duo, Justice Elizabeth Kabanda reasoned with them that they had willingly pleaded guilty, are first time offenders but above all remorseful, she sentenced each of them to 14 years imprisonment
