Police Commends Judiciary for Double Verdict in Nagirinya and Isabella Trinity Cases

As you are all aware, High Court Judge Isaac Muwata found the key suspect in the murder of Maria Nagirinya and Ronald Kitayimbwa, a certain Compoliyamu Kasolo, guilty of committing six offenses against them. He was sentenced to life imprisonment after participating in the kidnap, murder, and aggravated robbery of the victims. Accordingly, Hassan Kisekka, Nasif Kalyango, and Shafik Mpanga were each sentenced to 30 years of imprisonment for their involvement in the crime. This sentence took into account the time they had already spent on remand. They joined Isaac Ssenabulya, who had earlier pleaded guilty.

In a separate development in Jinja City, the High Court sentenced Felista Namaganda, a 28-year-old female adult, to life imprisonment for sacrificing her landlord’s daughter, Isabella Trinity Nakisuyi, aged 4. Isabella was the daughter of John Mulodi and Annet Nakisasi, residents of Kakira cell in Jinja City. Namaganda’s boyfriend, Pastor Joseph Sselubiri of the Healing and Deliverance Church in Market cell, Kakira Town Council, had pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder and an additional 30 years for child trafficking.

The convicts beheaded the 4-year-old female victim and dumped her headless body in a sugarcane plantation in Kakira, Jinja district. Her severed head was recovered in Wanyamge.

The police would like to express gratitude to the public for their trust and patience as we worked with various police units including KMP, Jinja City Police, CID, Flying Squad, Crime Intelligence, CMI, SFC, IT and CCTV teams, General Duties, FFU, and PRO, among others. They also acknowledge the exceptional collaboration and partnership with the office of the DPP, which resulted in the successful prosecution and conviction of the suspects. Furthermore, the police fraternity extend their sincere thanks to the Judiciary and the respective High Court Judges for their diligent evaluation of the evidence and conviction of the suspects.
