Court sets dates for hearing of Katanga murder suspects’ bail application

Must read

The Criminal Division of the High Court in Kampala has further remanded Katanga murder suspects pending the hearing of their bail applications.

Last week, Nakawa Magistrate’s Court committed Molly Katanga to High Court for trial. She is accused of killing her husband, Henry Katanga.

The businessman was allegedly shot dead by his wife on November 2, 2023, at their home in Mbuya, Nakawa Division, Kampala City.

Her two daughters, Martha Nkwanzi and Patricia Kakwanza, are accused of tampering with evidence at the crime scene, rendering it unidentifiable for judicial proceedings, while George Amanyire, a shamba boy, and Charles Otai, a health worker, are accused of assisting others involved in the crime.

Through their lawyers, led by Jet John Mwebaze, the suspects applied for bail. Appearing before Justice Isaac Muwata, the hearing of their bail application was further pushed after Assistant Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Samali Wakoli failed to respond to the application.

Subsequently, the court set February 12, 2024, for further mention on whether or not the sureties presented by the suspects linked to the murder of city businessman Henry Katanga are substantial enough to grant them bail.
