Among the people who are suspected to have participated in this murder is Sarah Nabikolo Sebunya (widow), Nakungu Sandra (sister to Sarah) and Ashraf Jadeni a police officer at Muyenga community police.

These were arrested a few weeks after the death of the tycoon and were charged with murder at Makindye magistrates court in November 2014.


The state produced 23 witnesses pinning them as for them they opted for to defend themselves on sworn testimony but didnt bring any other defense witness apart from themselves.

Two court assesors, in their opinion advised court to convict the three accused persons on grounds that the prosecution witnesses clearly brought up the level of participation of each of the three in this murder.

The other ingredients required by law to prove a murder offence like there was death of an individual, the death was unlawful and there was malice afore thought are not disputed by both sides therefore the state had to prove that it’s the acussed persons that killed the deceased.

It’s now up to the judge to weigh the evidence on record and decide whether to convict or acquit the accused persons.

On conviction the convict may suffer death or life imprisonment depending on the mitigation factors.
