A 23-year-old student of Uganda Christian University (UCU) has pleaded guilty before Buganda Road court, to broadcasting pornographic material.
A student identified as Lillian Rukundo was on Monday arraigned in Buganda Road Court in Kampala over her involvement in the distribution in an x-rated video of herself masturbating.
The student was charged with 10 counts before being convicted on her own plea of guilty.
According to media reports, Lillian was remanded in prison where she will stay until Friday this week to give court a chance to watch videos before judgment.
Prosecutions claims that Rukundo in 2017 while in her hostel in Mukono District produced a video of herself masturbating and shared it through social media for purposes of sexually arousing whoever watched it.
The prosecuting officer said:
“We came across the video of the accused in 2017 and our team swung into action immediately after which she was arrested and questioned. She admitted making the pornographic video and then distributing it on Facebook for the view of the public”
She has been charged with 10 counts of broadcasting pornographic material. Rukundo also pleaded guilty to publishing pictures of her naked body from the breast to the knees.
The chief magistrate, Ms Mary Babirye remanded her to Luzira Prison until July 13, 2018 when she will return to court for sentencing. Rukundo’s lack ran last month when a whistle blower tipped the Pornographic Control Committee
