Katanga Murder: Nakawa magistrate commits Widow to High Court for trial

Must read

Nakawa Chief Magistrate Court has committed Molly Katanga, the prime suspect implicated in the murder of city businessman Henry Katanga, to High Court for trial.

The businessman was reportedly gunned down by his wife, Molly, on November 2, 2023, at their home in Mbuya, Nakawa Division, Kampala City.

Appearing before Chief Magistrate Elias Kakooza, Molly was committed to High Court after the prosecution said it had concluded its investigations.

Her appearance and committal to the high court followed the issuance of an arrest warrant against her on January 22, 2024. Molly, who was earlier wheeled into court, is reportedly ill after being allegedly operated on for the fifth time in a period of two months. She was hospitalised at Kampala International Hospital (IHK).

Molly joins her two daughters, Martha Nkwanzi and Patricia Kakwanza; George Amanyire, a shamba boy; and Charles Otai, a health worker, who were  committed to High Court on Monday.

Nkwanzi and Kakwanza are accused of tampering with evidence at the crime scene, rendering it unidentifiable for judicial proceedings. Amanyire and Charles Otai, a health worker, are accused of assisting others involved in the crime.

Molly Katanga’s legal team has asked the court to order the police to vacate their home in Mbuya, which has been under police surveillance and control since November 2, 2023.
