Brian Isiko’s lawyer has told the Grapevine that the state has started playing games after refusing to adhere to their request of availing them information to be used in cross examination.

In conversation with the Grapevine, Counsel Waiswa Ramathan said that they had written to court on the 15th of November 2018 informing them about their intention to use Compact Disks (CD’s) in the cross examination of the state witness and they were granted permission but unfortunate at the time of examination today, the equipment was not available.

Buganda Road Grade one Magistrate Ms. Stella Maris Amabilis Odong by consent of the two parties, the state prosecutor and the accused lawyer adjourned the case to the 12th of December at 2pm when the machine will be availed.

Last Friday, this court rejected the application for amendment on the charge sheet by the state and the state went on to present it first witness Hon. Sylvia Rwabogo to testify against the accused and was asked to narrate how it all began. She went on to read the Text Message in the evidence but because of time, the Court proceedings were adjourned to today the 27th of November since it was past the normal time.

Put Emphasis On The Conduct Of Katushabe’s Killers Before And After Her Murder – Judge Guides Court Assessors In Tycoon Sebuufu’s Murder Case

Published

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.
