Mathew Kanyamunyu leaving the High Court today after his bail application was rejected

High Court judge Yasin Nyanzi has refused to grant bail to jailed murder suspect Mathew Kanyamunyu.

Kanyamunyu, who is accused of killing social worker Kenneth Akena Watmon on November 12 last year, has so far been denied bail for three times. Akena died at Norvik Hospital on November 13.

And in his ruling today Justice Yasin Nyanzi, who presided over the bail application hearing, said Kanyamunyu has right to apply for bail as many times, but not before same judge, under similar circumstances.

Mathew Kanyamunyu, the Executive Director of Quantum Express Logistics, is facing the murder charge with his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu and lady friend Cynthia Munwangali, the latter two who were granted bail on March 27 by Justice Nyanzi.

Previously, Mathew Kanyamunyu had presented Moses Karuhanga, Julius Kanyamunyu, Timothy Tumusiime and Stella Barungi Karuhanga as his sureties, but the state objected to the bail application, arguing that nothing has changed to compel court to change its earlier decision.
