Entebbe High Court presided over by Justice Jane Abodo has found Godfrey Wamala alias Troy guilty of manslaughter following the death of singer, late Moses Sekibogo alias Mowzey Radio.
The development happened this morning when Justice Abodo found Troy guilty of manslaughter as opposed to murder, which he has earlier been charged.
Prosecution told court that Troy beat up Radio on January 22, 2018, while at the De bar. It is alleged that the late pencil thin singer poured alcohol on revelers. He was later restrained by a one Pamela Musimire and another person only identified as Ategeka who took him outside of the bar.
However, Wamala reportedly grabbed the singer and beat him up from outside, sending him into a coma for ten days, before he was pronounced dead. According to Prosecution, the accused took off and hid in Kyengera until February 4, 2018 when he handed himself to police following Radio’s death.
This morning, Justice Abodo said that Troy had no malice aforethought to kill Mowzey but that squarely linked himself to the scene of crime when he admitted he was present during the incident.
A sad and seemingly scared Troy denied touching the musician saying he saw two other men beating him up.
Manslaughter attracts a maximum penalty of life imprisonment, and Justice Abodo adjourned the case to October 31, 2019 when she will sentence the accused.
