Former Medical Union leader, Dr Apollo Nyangasi has been handed a life sentence.
High court Judge Jane Kiggundu said that Nyangasi was meant to protect his wife as a husband but instead turned against her breaking the law.
The judge however said that the convict was not handed a death sentence because his children needed him after losing their mother.
Nyangasi was convicted on 19th of October 2012 of murdering his wife Christine Dambio.
He is said to have murdered his wife Christine Dambio at their matrimonial home in Kireka B a Kampala suburb.
He is said to have beaten and strangled his wife after a misunderstanding related to property and accusations of infidelity.
The victim was found unconscious in the bathroom and rushed to Mulago Hospital, where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
