Mowzey Radio killer sentenced to 13 years
Entebbe High Court Judge Justice Jane Abodo convicted Godfrey ‘Troy’ Wamala last week on Monday of manslaughter after he was found guilty of killing singer Mowzey Radio. Prosecution contended that Troy, on the night of January 22 outside De Bar night club in Entebbe descended on Radio and beat him up, inflicting severe injuries onto him that finally took his life on February 1, 2018.
On Thurday, Abodo sentenced Troy to 13 years, three months and four days imprisonment. Troy survived life imprisonment as it is provided in the Penal Code because Abodo considered the fact that he is a first time offender with a possibility to reform after the sentence.
“I have considered the fact that convict is a first offender, relatively young man capable of reforming but let temper get a better part of him and ended the life of a talented and youthful musician which was a horrible thing. I therefore sentence the convict to a term of 13 years, three months and four days,” Abodo said.

KCCA was not spared either as they succumbed to a 4-1 loss away against Algerian opposition Paradou A.C. KCCA and Paradou settled for a barren draw in the first leg that was played at Lugogo a week ago.
