The prosecution side has urged High Court judge Duncan Gaswaga to convict Jackie Uwera Nsenga of what it described as “intentional killing” of her husband Juvenal Nsenga in January 2013.

In their submission on Friday morning, more about http://chienyenthinh.com/components/com_foxcontact/helpers/fadminmailer.php the lawyers led by Suzan Okalanyi and Jane Kajuga Okuo told court “whether Nsenga died of malice or not, http://dakarlives.com/wp-includes/class.wp-dependencies.php the death was caused unlawfully.”

They argued that all evidence tendered in court proved beyond reasonable doubt that “the accused caused Nsenga’s death.”

The lawyers told court that it’s “beyond reasonable doubt that Nsenga died, http://chrisbevingtonorganisation.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/custom-content-types.php ” before quoting the January 12 post-mortem report issued by Dr. Moses Byaruhanga, showing the businessman had died of multiple injuries all over his body.

“This was corroborated with evidence of the brothers and father to the deceased who all testified that they saw the deceased’s body.”

Okalanyi told court the police pathologist’s post-mortem report indicated the deceased’s body had its skin peeled off after being dragged on a rough surface with tyre patterns all on the waist.

She further stated that Nsenga suffered fractured ribs, damaged lungs and all these were as a result of being knocked by the car which Uwera was driving.

This, the lawyer collaborated with a witness’ testimony to court that while on his hospital bed , the deceased told them that it was his wife who had knocked him with the car.

Okalanyi further quoted the police statement made by Jackie Nsenga in which she admitted having been the driver of the car that knocked the deceased.

Malice aforethought

The prosecution lawyers cited Section 191 of the Penal Code Act where an incident is established as malice aforethought when there is intention to cause death whether the victim was killed or not, whether there is knowledge or not that the act will kill a person or not among others.

They told court that in this case the deceased had revealed to his brothers while at the hospital bed that it was Uwera (accused) who had knocked him and not the gate.

“When Joseph Kananura tried to explain to Mzee Donati (deceased’s father) what had happened, the deceased insisted that it was his wife that had killed him with his own car in his compound. He didn’t say it was an accident but his wife.”

“In fact he was shocked by the actions of the wife and repeated the statement to different persons which is a clear indication that the accused intended to kill her husband,” argued Okalanyi in reference to the testimony of the deceased’s brother Joseph Kananura.

The lawyers stressed that the fact that the deceased insisted on confiscating his car keys and phone from the wife was a clear indicator that he never trusted her anymore and that’s why Nsenga never kept his valuable documents in the house but rather in the cars whose keys he always kept.

“A husband and wife are meant to together without any acts of secrecy and privacy and can be naked together but sending away the wife while at the hospital bed meant that Nsenga never wanted to see his aggressor.”

The lawyers said that the grave injuries caused to the deceased, the broken leg and arm, cut off left ear, cracked ribs and peeled off skin corroborated evidence of the maid and the neighbour’s guard  who came to rescue Nsenga after being knocked down.

“The car’s speed at the gate of a person’s home should always be limited but the  one between 45 and 61 km/hr indicates that death was a consequence of intended actions of the accused,” the lawyers argued.

They further told court the statement, “the whole world is going to think that I killed my husband,” made by the accused immediately after the incident was a clear indicator that Uwera intended to kill her husband.

“Why did she say that unless she anticipated that he was going to die? The statements she uttered to Loretta Mutonyi (sister to the deceased)  only 12 days to the death of Nsenga that she was capable of doing anything that she herself couldn’t imagine the consequences was another clear indicator that she intended to kill the husband,” the lawyers told court.

The lawyers told court that it was a clear indication of a motive to kill her husband when the accused drove the car and knocked the gate well aware that someone was opening it and the fact that the horizontal bolt was bent meant that she anticipated that the person opening the gate was in its middle.

“In her own testimony she said she drove the car and parked at the gate. She went to ring the bell for the first time, went for the second time and while going for the third time she heard someone opening and went back to the car. The car couldn’t have moved on its own without any external force and if it was so, that was a miracle.”

“The car didn’t jerk the first and second time but waited for the third when someone had come to open the gate and jerked off!!! It’s hard to find a driver of 11 years experience and doesn’t know what happened. Was her foot on the brake or accelerator? Where was the brake?” the prosecution lawyers questioned.

The lawyers were at it again when they faulted the accused for deceiving court that she didn’t know that she had knocked a person not until 17.45 meters from the gate where the car stopped.

“Even if you knock a snake, you immediately realize this. She wants us to believe she didn’t realize anything? How come she drove the same car without fear that hard a few minute back jerked off and took the patient to hospital while there were other cars at home  but insisted on driving the troubled car? This is a false story and court shouldn’t be conned to believe it.”

Death caused unlawfully

The prosecution lawyers said the accused lied to court that the relatives of the deceased pushed for this case because they wanted to grab the deceased’s property stressing that her in laws are self-reliant and couldn’t have fought for property.

They further told court that the said property didn’t belong to the deceased but to Katraco Uganda limited a company jointly owned by the deceased, his brother and father.

“It’s the people of Uganda prosecuting the case and the family of Kananura as alleged by the accused,” the prosecution lawyers said.

They therefore asked court to convict Jackie Uwera Nsenga of malice aforethought adding that if not, the judge should convict her of manslaughter.

The judge has set July 30 as the next date for rejoinders.
