Judge Angeline Flavia Senoga, the presiding High Court judge in the murder case in which pine car bond tycoon Muhammad Sebuufu and six others are charged with three counts of murder, kidnap and armed robbery, has guided the three court assessors to base their opinion more on the conduct of the suspects before and after the murder of city businesswoman Betty Donah Katushabe. 

In her summation of evidence, the judge noted that the assessors must carefully assess the evidences brought by the 26 witnesses produced by prosecution side before the court by the state prosecution team and reply from the defense and advise her from the laymen’s observations.

She guided them to look carefully into whether Katushabe was illegally kidnapped from her home in Bwebajja on Entebbe road and taken to pine car bond on Lumumba avenue. She further guided the assessors to asks themselves why Katushabe was taken to pine car bond and not CPS police. She also guided the assessors to also look into the evidence brought to court that Steven Lwanga, one of the suspects was ordered by police to drive Katushabe to Central Police Station (CPS) after seriously being tortured to die. It’s alleged that Lwanga drove a half dead Katushabe to CPS but refused to hand her over to police and decided to drive her back to pine were she was later picked by police.

The judge asked the assessors to examine Lwanga’s hidden agenda of not handing Katushabe over to police. The judge also tasked the assessors to look into the police case filed by Sebuufu’s assistants at CPS police complaining about theft of his car by the deceased. The judge wondered why the case was not followed up by the complainant until the deceased was murdered. She asked the assessors to evaluate the evidence against Sebuufu that by the time the diseased was tortured and murdered, he was at Mwanga two court and he was not present at the scene. The Judge set 29th this month for the assessors to give their opinion so that she can give her final verdict. The state alleges that Sebuufu and the co-accused murdered Katushabe after she failed to pay the balance of shs9m on the Toyota premio car she had purchased from the pine car bond.
