FLASHBACK: Mathew Kanyamunyu appearing in court

Justice Yasin Nyanzi has set August 23 as the date for hearing and ruling on Mathew Kanyamunyu’s bail application, after the latter was charged with the murder of social worker Kenneth Akena on November 12 last year.

Mathew Kanyamunyu, the Executive Director of Quantum Express Logistics, his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu and girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari were in January committed to the High Court by the Nakawa Grade one magistrate Noah Sajjabi after prosecution averred investigations into the murder case were complete.

Today, Mathew Kanyamunyu, the prime suspect in Akena’s murder, had presented Moses Karuhanga, his uncle Julius Kanyamunyu, Timothy Tumusiime and Stella Barungi Karuhanga as his sureties but the State objected to the bail application saying nothing has changed to compel court to change its earlier decision.
