Julius Twebaze, a pastor attached to LiftUp Jesus Church Kisiizi in Rukungiri district has earned himself a 7-year jail term for defilement. Justice Moses Kazibwe found pastor Twebaze, 42, guilty of defiling a 12-year-old girl.

 

Prosecution led by the Rukungiri District Resident State Attorney, Richard Muhereza told court that Twebaze defiled his victim a senior one student of Grace High School Kisiizi in Kisiizi Upper trading Center in Nyarushanje Sub County on December 17th 2016. 

 

He explained that that Twebaze seduced the victim with pancakes, eggs and chapatti before defiling her. In his judgment, Justice Moses Kazibwe said the evidence presented before court was sufficient to implicate the accused.

 

He therefore sentenced him to seven years in prison, saying that he should have been acted as a parent by protecting the victim's rights to sexual harassment. Kazibwe said the sentence will deter others with similar intentions from committing the same crime.
