Mathew Kanyamunyu, who allegedly shot Mr Akena for knocking his vehicle.

Suspected murderer Mathew Kanyamunyu, his brothers Joseph and Moses and lady friend Cynthia Munangwira are expected to appear before the Nakawa magistrate’s court this afternoon.

Sources had indicated that Mr Kanyamunyu was due to appear in court yesterday, however that did not happen leading to speculation as to what may have happened to the suspects.

The quartet is being held on charges of killing social worker Kenneth Akena Watmon last Saturday evening, reportedly after the latter reversed his car and scratched that of Kanyamunyu, allegedly resulting in a fatal shooting.

Apparently, police has up to now failed to recover the killer gun.

In a related development, the Director of Public Prosecution Mike Chibita has called for calm and patience as his office and the police prepare to arraign in court.

According to the DPP, the public will be kept abreast with the developments regarding the case.

The death of Akena has since elicited public anxiety and also sparked off outrage that has since engulfed Kampala and caused divided opinion almost tending to a sectarian tinge.
