Godfrey Wamala alias Troy, the man who was recently convicted with manslaughter for killing late singer Moses Sekibogo aka Mowzey Radio will spend the next 14 years in prison.
Entebbe High Court Judge, Justice Jane Abodo on Monday found Troy guilty of manslaughter despite a murder charge that had been tied on him.
While delivering the sentence at Entebbe High Court this morning, Justice Abodo reiterated that Troy had no intention to kill Radio, though his blows led to the singer’s death.
Troy will now spend 13 years, three months and four days in prison since he has already served one year, eight months and 26 days on remand in Kigo Prison.
Justice Abodo added that the convict has a right to appeal the sentece if he’s not satisfied with her decision.
During the trial, Troy pleaded not guilty to the charges, claiming he did not at any point touch the deceased, but had seen some other people who allegedly beat him up, causing death ten days later.
Prosecution told Court that Troy, on January 22, 2018 was hanging out with Radio at the De bar, before a scuffle ensued between Radio and other revelers
It is alleged that Radio poured booze on revelers, only to be saved by a lady known as Pamela Musimire and another person only identified as Ategeka who intervened and took him out of the bar.
It was after the incident that Troy found the trio, pounced on the singer, beat him up, leaving him for death. The beating sent Radio 6 ft under, 10 days later.
