Godfrey Wamala alias Troy has been found guilty of manslaughter and not murder which he had been charged with for singer Moses Ssekibogo Nakintije aka Mowzey Radio's death.
According to Justice Abodo, Wamala did not have malice aforethought to kill Mowzey Radio despite the fact that the Goodlyfe Crew singer died following a bar brawl. The judge in her ruling read to a fully packed court argued that Troy Wamala squarely linked himself to the scene of crime when he admitted he was present when the incident happened.
In his defence, Wamala had denied touching the musician and said he saw two other men beating him up hence leading to this judgement.
Manslaughter is lesser offense than murder which attracts a maximum penalty of life imprisonment. Justice Abodo adjourned the case to October 31, 2019 when she will sentence Wamala.
The Court heard that on January 22, 2018, Wamala was seen with Radio at the De bar drinking, before a scuffle between the singer and other people ensued. Radio allegedly poured booze on some people before a one Pamela Musimire and another person only identified as Ategeka intervened by taking Radio out of the bar.
