20 years old HIV POSTIVE Mother of one sentenced to death in Uganda
Judith Koriang, a 20 year old widow with a son has been sentenced to death by the court martial in Moroto District North Eastern part of Uganda.
Kiriang sprayed her husband Pre. Nelson Okello with 30 shot to death on May 1, 2009 at Nakiloro army detachment in Moroto District, a few kilometers to the Uganda –Kenya boarder following Domestic fracas.
The discordant couple were residing in a makeshift hut popularly known as mam ingia pole. After Koriang tested HIV positive and her husband negative, it triggered endless insults and threats from the husband who persisted in demanding that she goes to the man who infected her. Koriang told the court that Okello was the only man she had known and that her action for self defense following threats by her husband.
As the court martial handed the death sentence to Koriang on Wednesday 15, 2010, she stood still and helpless and in tears .
I hereby request World Pulse team and Voices to rescue Koriang, I believe her action must have come out of several consequences although I have not had exclusive interview with her, I presume she must have gone through tuff times with Okello her husband. Maybe Medical counselors are to blame for giving them adequate counseling.
What is your opinion, do you want Koriang killed or pardoned? Act TODAY to determine her end.This is a call for action dear friends.
