Hearing of the murder case against businessman Mathew Kanyamunyu and two others accused of murdering social worker Kenneth Akena didn’t kick off before High court as was fixed.
This was thanks to State Prosecution’s failure to furnish the defence side with the evidence they intend to use against them in time.
Kanyamunyu who is jointly charged with his brother Joseph and girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari were present at court with their lawyers ready for the trial.
State prosecutor Fatina Nakafeero however, informed presiding judge Steven Mubiru that she couldn’t proceed to serve her witnesses without going through this requisite pre-trial step.
She thus asked the trial judge to adjourn the case to the next session, with hope that by then, she will have disclosed all the evidence and exhibits to the defence team.
Justice Mubiru pushed the trial to the next criminal session saying he couldn’t find another date for the matter in this ending session.
Part of the evidence Prosecution intends to disclose, shows that Kanyamunyu was driving along with his lover Munwangari before he got into a quarrel with Akena whom he accused of scratching and putting a dent on his Toyota Land cruiser vehicle.
It’s further alleged that Kanyamunyu shot Akena three times in the stomach and later the couple played Good Samaritan and rushed him to Norvik Hospital on Bombo road where he died.
