Dr. Mathew Kirabo has been ordered to spend 30 years in prison for the murder of his 19-year-old girlfriend, Desire Mirembe in July 2015.
Mukono High Court’s Justice Henry Kaweesa Isabirye today considered that Kirabo is a first-time offender who should be given a chance to reform.
The Court has however deducted the one month and 7 days that Kirabo spent on remand.
Kirabo, a 32-year-old medical doctor, worked at Mulago Hospital’s emergency unit and Kawempe referral hospital while the late Mirembe was a medical student at Makerere University at the time of her untimely death,
He was arrested in Kenya by Interpol on September 12, 2023, and extradited to Uganda to complete the trial. END
