The full story is here http://newvision.co.ug/D/8/12/646180. She was sentenced for illegal possesion of a firearm, and conspiracy to murder. NOw, the law is clear on the punishment for that, which is death, but is it fair that a mother of nine children, head of a poor family, should be sentenced to death? I suggest that she should have been given a more lenient term, seven-ten years and time to visit her family. Whatya think of the whole thing?

wow thats complex,whilst i agree that oif you make an exception for one you must make it for all, it seems this woman was trying to protect her children and i believe that any worthy mother would kill to protect her child.I am not condoning this i just mean that the maternal instinct is one of the most amazing things in the world

It is very sad. I really do not want to read that link right now as I am running out of time in here but I am hoping for a miracle.
