The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has appealed against the acquittal of Sarah Nabikolo, the widow to slain businessman Eriya Ssebunya Bugembe who was popularly known as Kasiwukira.
The law demands that any dissatisfied party has 14 days within which to appeal to a higher court from the date of judgment.
High Court judge Wilson Masalu Musene acquitted Nabikolo of murder charges on October 12, saying the prosecution had failed to prove that she was part of a ploy to eliminate her husband.
The same court however, convicted her sister Sandra Nakkungu and a police officer Jaden Ashraf.
Justice Musene ruled that Sandra Nakungu and Jaden had a common intention to kill Kasiwukira.
But the DPP says the acquittal was erroneous and wants the matter revisited.
His appeal comes barely a week after Nabikolo’s cousin, Sandra Nakkungu and a policeman, Ashraf Jaden, formerly attached to Muyenga Community Police Post appealed against the 20 year-jail term handed to each of them.
Prosecution had alleged that the three unlawfully caused the death of Kasiwukira by running over him with a car while he was jogging in the morning on October 17, 2014 along the road near his home in Muyenga suburb.
