Man rapes 75-year-old granny because 'she is AIDs-free'

20 April 2015, 16:34 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - For fear of contracting HIV/AIDs from young women and girls, a 30-year-old mechanic and two of his friends resorted to raping a 75-year-old woman.

While appearing before justice Elizabeth Musoke in Iganga high court, Tiff Kidde pleaded for mercy saying that he did it once and will never do it again.

The old woman, Joweria Nampiima told court that she was gang raped by three men as she walked to her home at night.

''They grabbed me and pulled me to a nearby bush where they raped me in turns. By the time they were through, I was feeling as if I was sitting on fire, in terrible pain. I identified Kidde and reported him to authorities later,'' said Nampiima.

''I did it because I was sure that the old woman had no HIV/AIDs. Unlike the young women and girls in the town, I was sure that she was disease-free and that is the reason my friends and I forced her into sex,'' pleaded Kidde.

But the judge did not soften due to Kidde's confession. She sent him to serve 25 years behind bars for raping the old woman.

Kidde's three accomplices are still at large.
