Akena murder: Kanyamunyu pleaded not guilty as trial court set date for trial.


Three suspects accused of murdering of Akena Kenneth on 12th November 2016 have Tuesday morning pleaded not guilty before Justice Mubiru Ephan of Criminal Division of High Court in Kampala.

Mathew Kanyamunyu, Cynthia Munwangari and Joseph Kanyanumyu have today been before this court for plea taking before the Judge adjourned the matter to 21st January 2019 for trial.

Mathew and Cynthia are charged with murder and Joseph the elder brother to Mathew has two counts; murder and accessory to murder when he allegedly hid the pistol alleged to have been used in the act.

Prosecution alleges that on the fateful day of 12th November 2019 around Lugogo opposite Uganda Manufacturers Association in Kampala, while driving UAW 548M misunderstandings erupted between the suspects and the deceased, and in the process, Kenneth met his last breath.

Cynthia who seemed smiling in the docks, asked court for a French interpreter before she could take the plead which was availed to her.

The trio who are being represented by Kabega MacDusman and Caleb Alaka, attended Tuesday’s session driving the same car claimed to have been used on the said day.

Court has also extended their bail until next month when their trial begins.
