Dr Emmanuel Nuwagaba, a Police surgeon who examined Muhammad Sebuufu and other suspects accused of murdering businesswoman Donah Katushabe has told court that all eight were of sound mind and in normal and physical status.
Nuwagaba, while testifying yesterday before Kampala High Court Judge Anglin Senoga, said Sebuufu, the owner of Pine Car Bond as well as his seven co-accused persons were found with no physical injuries on their bodies.
He said he conducted the examination at the request of Kampala Central Police and that the results were recorded on Police form 24.
Meanwhile, another witness SPC Specioza Nyanzi narrated to court how the deceased found herself in the custody of Sebuufu where she was tortured to her last breath.
Nyanzi, at the time of the murder in October 2015 was attached to Baganda Bus Park Police post in Kampala.
She informed court that she was part of the team which arrested Katushabe from her home in Bwebajja and took her to Pine Car bond instead of Central Police Station.
The Police officer says even though her orders were to take Mrs Katushabe to CPS, she and her colleagues were asked by the deceased to take her to Mr Sebuufu’s car bond so that they could sort out the matter.
Mrs Katushabe owed a balance of Shs 9million to Sebuufu; from a car she had purchase from the bond.
Nyanzi says they arrived at the bond at around 7.30 pm in the evening.
She says she and the other officers left Katushabe and her would-be captors inside negotiating and went back to the station.
“I was surprised reading later in the papers that she had passed away. On 23rd October 2015 as I was walking along Baganda Bus Park I saw on Bukedde newspaper that the lady we arrested had been killed and on the same page I saw Sebuufu’s picture in the corner. I called SPC Birikadde with whom we worked during the arrest and he confirmed that she died,” narrated the police officer.
During cross examination, Nyanzi identified Sebuufu and Paul Tasingika as some of the people she saw at the car bond.
Hearing of the case resumes tomorrow Thursday.
