High court judge Steven Mubiru will start in January next year to hear the case in which Quantum Logistics Executive Director Mathew Kanyamunyu and his girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari are charged with the murder of Kenneth Akena, a social worker in 2017.
The case will be heard on 8th, 9th and 10th of January.
In fulfilment of the legal requirements of any criminal trial, the judge has appointed Juliet Kasengwa and Simon Mateeka as Assessors (lay people) who will follow the case to the end and later advise court, although their decision is unbinding
Prosecution led by Jonathan Muwaganya insists that it has enough evidence through their competent witnesses to pin the suspects in the murder.
Kanyamunyu and Munwangari are represented by Mac Dusman Kabega and Evans Ochieng.
The third accused person Joseph Kanyamunyu, an elder brother to Mathew is separately charged with being an accessory to the said murder.
He is said to have picked the killer gun from the vehicle at the crime scene after being called on phone by his brother.
The murder occurred on the 12th/November 2017 along Kampala -Jinja Highway.
All the three accused persons are out on bail having fulfilled all the legal requirements in 2017.
Prosecution alleges that Kanyamunyu was driving with Cynthia and later on they got in a quarrel with Akena who was driving a Toyota Premio for scratching his car (Land cruiser Prado) and later shot him in the stomach using a pistol.
That after shooting him, Kanyamunyu played Good Samaritan and rushed Akena to Norvik Hospital along Kampala Bombo Road where he was pronounced dead.
