Buganda Road Court chief magistrate Flavia Nabakooza has found former Sports Club Villa boss Chris Mubiru guilty of sodomising a teenager.

Nabakooza relied on the sodomy kits that the investigating police officer picked from Mubiru's house to find him guilty of having carnal knowledge against the order of nature.
 
She however, acquitted him of the second count of of sodomising George Oundo. The magistrate reasoned that in this count, the victim willfully took himself to Mubiru and that he was paid Shs 500,000 for his sexual services.

Court heard that Mubiru's teenage victim met at Mateos, a city restaurant along Parliamentary Avenue.  After the warm encounter, Mubiru asked the teenager to visit him at his home.

The teenager who had reportedly been banished from home was glad to pay Mubiru a visit at his home with hope of finding him a job. Upon reaching Mubiru's home, the former football administrator immediately handed his victim a glass of wine that is believed to have laced with chloroform, which made him unconscious.
 
Mubiru reportedly took advantage of the teenager's unconsciousness to sodomise him.

The prosecution had stated that in December 2009 in Kisingiri Zone, Mengo in Kampala, Mubiru had sexual intercourse with a male person against the order of nature contrary to Section 145(a) of the Penal Code Act.
 
After convicting Mubiru on one count, court said it will pass its sentence on September 18. Accordingly, the magistrate cancelled Mubiru's bail and remanded him to Luzira prison to await his sentence.

Peter Mugisha, the state prosecutor asked court to hand Mubiru a harsh sentence of life imprisonment reasoning that his acts were against the cultural norms.

Mugisha further argued that the victim was taken advantage of and suffered irreparable mental anguish adding that his tormentor does not deserve to be in the community.
 
Last year, police opened a general inquiry file against Mubiru but failed to arrest him as he had reportedly fled the country. He later returned and was arrested and detained at Katwe Police Station in Kampala.
