Killer Father Gets 20 Years

A father convicted of killing his five-year-old son was last week sentenced to 20 years in prison by the High court in Jinja.

Prosecution said Robert Kafeero (30) hit Jacob Ouma against the wall several times, killing him instantly, after a quarrel with his wife in October 2011. Kafeero’s wife, Jane Nekesa, told court that she pleaded with him to spare her son in vain.

Justice Elizabeth Alividza said Kafeero, from Kagulumu village in Namutumba district, had acted like a beast.
