We Now Want Minister Nantaba In The Dock – Sebulime’s Family Lawyer Vows As Key Suspect Is Charged With Murder



Lawyer Muwada Nkunyingi, who is representing the family of fallen bike rider Ronald Sebulime has vowed to fight tooth and nail to see that state minister for Information Technology Aida Nantaba is charged with the murder of Sebulime.

Muwada says that there are many unanswered questions in the murder of Sebulime and Nantaba is in better position to give answers.

 “We are now satisfied that one of the alleged killers has been remanded and charged with a capital offence. We now want other police officers who were involved to be brought to court and charged including minister Nantaba,”   Muwada charged.

He added that there were many police officers on the police patrol vehicle that arrested and later murdered, these should also be brought to book.

Today, 46-year old Corporal David Ssali was charged before Mukono grade one magistrate Mariam Nalugya Ssemwanga and remanded to Luzira prison for allegedly shooting to death Ronald Sebulime last month. Prosecution led by Racheal Namutebi submitted to court that on March 24, 2019, Ssali, a resident of Namungona, Lubaga division, who is also a police officer attached to Naggalama Police Station, unlawfully caused the death of Ronald Ssebulime.

Prosecution also told court that Ssali committed the offence at Nagojje trading Centre in Mukono District. Magistrate Nalugya did not allow Ssali to take plea, saying the offence is capital in nature and can only be heard in High Court.

She adjourned the case to April 30 for further mention.  Prosecution alleges that Sebulime was shoot to death last month after police officers from Naggalama police station accused him of trailing Minister Nantaba.

Eye witnesses revealed that Sebulime was arrested, handcuffed and put on a police patrol, but when his captors allegedly received orders from above, Ssali allegedly ordered Sebulime to be removed from the police patrol and he was shot with two bullets.

Is Government Killing Its Own People? Nambooze Asks After Nantaba Spilled The Beans That The Rampant Murders In Uganda Are State Sponsored And That ADF Is A State Creation To Hoodwink The Public As The Regime Agents Kill Ugandans With Impunity!….



Kayunga woman MP Aidah Erios Nantaba parliament yesterday shocked parliament when she revealed that the rampant murders in Uganda are State sponsored!

Nantaba, who was speaking during a session on Tuesday evening after several legislators, sought for protection because they have been recieving death from unknown persons, told parliament that the person who wants to kill her was behind the plot to kill former Butaleja Woman MP Cerinah Nebanda, who controversially died in 2012.

“I received a phone call from Cerinah Nebanda’s mother. She told me honorable, you are going to be killed by the same person who killed my daughter. I was shocked because I didn’t know where she had got my number. She told me I should go to her to get the details about the plot,” Nantaba revealed.

She insisted that, “The killers are from police and other security organs. The killer is not anybody from outside. They talk about ADF but the killers are within. But because they have the media, they play with the minds of Ugandans. I was told to be silent in my home, for them they were playing with the media to hoodwink the public to think it was an innocent man going to school to visit his children. If he was innocent, why did they kill him?”


Mukono municipality legislator Betty Nambooze Bakireke has asked government to launch an investigation into allegations from the former minister.

Nambooze says, “according to the immediate past ICT Minister Ida Erios Nantaba the rampant murders in Uganda are State sponsored! Nantaba also alleges that ADF is not a terrorist outfit but a State creation to hoodwink the public as the regime agents in the cover, move around killing Ugandans with impunity!”

She says, “Nantaba is so sure of what she is saying to the extent that now she has moved from making those statements in the media, to presenting them before Parliament.

Assuming that Nantaba is telling lies against what is Government going to do in order to bring her to book and clear the image of our security forces? OR Conceding that Nantaba is telling the truth, what defence does all of us have for not acting on this information?”

She adds, “For a regime Minister to come out and say that much against the government she has been serving, one wonder the amount of things that shall be declassified after the departure of Mr. Museveni ! Can it be true that the Government is killing its own people? Isn’t it time we cause an investigation.”

I Saw Kanyamunyu’s Brother Run Away With The Gun That They Used To Kill Akena – Witness Pin Kanyamunyu And Girlfriend…



Lawyer Kabega defending his clients Cynthia Munwangari and Mathew Kanyamunyu

Robert Mutebi, a third prosecution witness in the murder case of Kenneth Akenna, a social worker has told court today that the weapon that killed the deceased was smuggled out of Nakasero hospital by Joseph Kanyamunyu a brother to Mathew Kanyamunyu the first accused.

Mutebi, the former Nakasero hospital internal security guard told court that on 12 November 2016, in the evening hours, he saw a man standing with Kanyamunyu who had just brought in the hospital a very ill patient in the hospital’s parking yard.

He said that he was monitoring Kanyamunyu’s movements at the hospital because the patient he had brought while crying told them not to allow him together with a woman who was dressed in a short black suit to move out of the hospital because they were the ones who shot him.

Mutebi testified that the light was very clear which enabled him to see whatever was going on, he said that after a few minutes, another man joined Kanyamunyu and the woman in the parking yard.

“He handed him a pistol and a small bag and moved out of the hospital,” Mutebi narrated. He testified that after two days, a police detective who introduced himself as Afande Olal picked him together with his co-worker Moses Ecolas and they were taken to Kira police division in Wakiso district. He said that when they reached police, they were separated, each of them was taken in a different room.

He told court that in the room where he was taken, Afande Olal told him that the reason why he was brought to police was to identify the person he saw moving with a gun. He revealed that they brought to him a number of people but he still remembered the person who went with the pistol, he later identified the man’s name as Joseph Kanyamunyu.

Mutebi further told court that he was around when the deceased was brought to hospital in Kanyamunyu’s car while crying. It was him, Ecolas together with other nurses who moved him from the car. Mutebi said that while taking Akenna to the emergency room, he told them that Kanyamunyu was dressed in a blue suit with glasses and the woman dressed in a black suit.

“I remember very well when we reached in the room, the deceased, who was still talking told us not to allow the people who brought him to the hospital to go because they are the ones who shot him,” Mutebi testified.

He explained that the deceased told them that he was shot after sctratching the suspect’s vehicle as he was trying to reverse his car.

Mutebi testified that in the middle of the conversation, the hospital senior nurses Molly and Persis told them to move out of the room so that they try to save Akena’s life. When they moved out, they started monitoring Kanyamunyu’s movements. They saw him making frequent phone calls in the hospital parking lot.

He testified that after a few minutes, Persis called them as security to come back to the room and listen to what the patient was telling them.

He narrated that when they reached the room, Akena was still asking them not to allow Kanyamunyu to go because they shot him.

Mutebi said that he agreed with his boss, a one Asiimwe to go and report the matter to police and also make a statement.

He said that after reporting the matter to Wandegeya police station, he was given a police officer who he went with to Nakasero hospital and the suspects were arrested. He said that during the arrest, he established that the suspects were Cynthia Munangwari and Mathew Kanyamunyu. The suspects were taken to Wandegeya police station. He testified that at Wandegeya police, he also recorded a statement and narrated whatever he saw. However, defense lawyers led by Evan Ochieng grilled Mutebi on why he was telling court lies because he had earlier told court that he doesn’t understand English, how then did he communicate to the deceased.

Ochieng further asked Mutebi why he didn’t arrest Joseph Kanyamunyu and other suspects while at the hospital.

In defense, Mutebi insisted that the deceased was speaking two languages English and Luganda, which he understands very well. He further testified that as an internal security officer, he was not responsible for making arrests, the security officer at the gate was the one responsible for arresting suspects like Kanyamunyu.

Ochieng tasked Mutebi to produce evidence that he recorded whatever he saw in the hospital’s security book of records.

Ochieng insisted that Mutebi is a drunkard who was telling court lies. Ochieng pinned Mutebi that because of his drunkenness, he has been fired from different security companies including Nakasero hospital.

Mutebi said that he recorded everything that happened that night in the security record book, Ochieng asked court to order Nakasero hospital to bring the said books.

The judge however didn’t allow Ochieng’s application to have the books brought saying that he cannot allow the defense team to ask for evidence in the middle of the hearing of the case yet they had a lot of time from 2016. He advised Ochieng and his team to apply to court to recall Mutebi to testify against the said books after testifying today because he doesn’t know the procedures of getting such documents from the hospital. The matter is still on going before High Court Criminal Division Judge Steven Mubiru.

Judge Orders Kanyamunyu Murder Trial To Kick Off In The Absence Of His Brother…



L-R: The accused Cynthia Munwangari, Joseph Kanyamunyu and Mathew Kanyamunyu

High Court Criminal Division Judge James Mubiru has ordered the kickoff the murder trial in which Mathew Kanyamunyu, a city businessman, his girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari and brother Joseph Kanyamunyu are accussed of killing Kenneth Akena, a social worker.

The judge overruled the defense’s application for adjournment because Joseph Kanyamunyu (A3) was not in court.

Lawyer MacDusman Kabega submitted to court that his client didn’t intentionally abscond from attending his trial because he was admitted at Case Clinic Kampala. Kabega produced a letter from the Case Clinic hospital Administration showing that Kanyamunyu was admitted in their facility for medical attention and asked that the trial be adjourned for 14 days because by then, they will be sure that he will be discharged from the hospital.

The defense lawyers led by senior state Attorney Jonathan Muwaganya challenged the adjournment.

“I heard the concern of the defense; they have shared with us the medical document but for the record, we came ready to proceed with the trial and we have witnesses prepared to testify. The decision to proceed without A3 (Kanyamunyu) needs a brief consultation from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) himself for guidance,” Muwaganya submitted.

However, the trial judge Mubiru told him that there is no need for consultation because it’s at the court’s discretion to determine whether to proceed with a separate trial of the accused, he cited section 52(1) of the trial indictment Act which allows the separate prosecution of the suspects.

He said that he also put into consideration the long time the case has spent in court. He further noted that the letter from Case Clinic didn’t show when Kanyamunyu will be discharged.

In conclusion, the judge ordered Muwaganya to do an amendment in the charge sheet and proceed with separate trial because the matter is of a public interest and needs a speedy trial in court.

Earlier, the trial delayed because Munwangari told court that she needs a French interpreter since she doesn’t understand English very well. It took court four hours looking for someone who understands French. A one Jim Nyabirungo was later brought to interpret for Munwangari.

Kanyamunyu and the co-accused are charged with the shooting Kenneth Akena dead. The state alleges that Kanyamunyu pulled out his gun and shot Akena who was kneeling apologizing to him after scratching his brand new land cruiser along Jinja Road.
