The judgement of the case in which Pine car bond owner Muhammad Sebuufu and seven others are accused of murdering businesswoman Dinah Betty Katushabe, has flopped for the second time due to judge’s health condition
Relatives of both the accused and the deceased appeared in court this morning ready for the ruling, only to be told that the trial judge Anglina Senoga couldn’t make it because she was sick
“The trial judge is indisposed and she has officially put it into writing adjourning the matter to 24th June 2019,” revealed Registrar Ayebare Tumwebaze.
This case had earlier been fixed for judgement on 30th May 2019 but on that date, the judge had not yet finalized with writing the judgement which forced her to push it up to today.
Sebuufu and 6 of his co-accused are out on bail.
The two assessors in their opinion which the judge may decide to take or not, advised court to acquit all the accused persons due tolack of evidence pinning them on the offences against them
Prosecution contends that on the 20th March 2015 Muhammad Sebuufu, Tasingika Paul, Godfrey Kayiza , Philip Mirambe , Stephen Lwanga , Shaban Oduttu, and others at large, by use of sticks and a panga beat Dinah Katushabe to death for failure to clear 9 million shillings debt which was balance for a car she had bought from Sebuufu.
