The Nakawa Magistrate court has committed the three ‘Lugogo Murder’ suspects  Mathew, Joseph Kanyamunyu and Cynthia Munwangari to the High Court for trial.

Grade one Magistrate Noah Ssajjabi committed them Tuesday on the request of prosecution’s Doreen Elima who told court investigations into their case are now  complete She confirmed she had instructions from the DPP to send them to the trial court.

Kenneth Akena is the deceased in the Lugogo Murder case. He was gunned down on November 12, 2016 at Forest Mall Lugogo along Jinja High way in Kampala, after  allegedly knocking Mathew Kanyamunyu’s motor vehicle.

DPP also preferred an alternative charge of being an accessory against Joseph Kanyamunyu who is accused of having taken away the killer gun.

The DPP added that he will adduce evidence at trial to discredit the trios defence that it’s the late Akena in company of another assailant that had come to attack Munwangari but unfortunately his accomplice shot him, and they only acted as good Samaritans to rush him to hospital.

Magistrate Ssajjabi has now sent them back to Luzira prison to await the next convenient criminal session of the high court, to stand trial.
