Court of Appeal Stays 20-year jail term for Widow who Murdered her Husband

Published

on


The Court of Appeal has maintained the 20-year jail term given to Jacqueline Uwera Nsenga for the murder of her late husband, Juvenal Kananura Nsenga in a disguised vehicle accident.

Justices Afonse Owiny-Dollo, Elizabeth Musoke, and Cheborion Barishaki made the ruling this morning after proving Nsenga’s crime beyond a reasonable doubt.

This is similar to the verdict given by Duncan Gaswaga who found Nsenga guilty of murdering Kananura by running him over with a car at their home in Bugolobi, Kampala on January 10th, 2013.

Nsenga who is serving her jail time in Luzira appealed the sentence saying that the trial judge erred in law and fact with the evidence collected to reach that conclusion.

Through her lawyer, David Mpanga, Nsenga had asked the Court of Appeal to quash the conviction because the prosecution presented witnesses that gave their own interpretations of the statements based on their personal understanding.

She alleges that the trial judge relied on unofficial translations of Kananura’s supposed dying declarations ‘my wife has killed me’ which were in their mother tongue Kinyarwanda by importing legal meaning to them.

The Judges ruled that the evidence of the dying declaration was relevant in supporting the prosecution evidence that the death was not accidental

Our finding on the revaluation of evidence which prosecution presented regarding the dying declaration is that the trial court rightly found that the dying declaration was reliable evidence that the appellant participated in the incident that led to the death of the deceased”the judge said

Top Police authorities are slated to meet the Katikkiro of Buganda Charles Peter Mayiga this morning to tackle the security raid on a thanksgiving function organized by the Mbogo clan head, and religious leaders at Mugulu in Mityana town over last weekend.

Mobogo Clan head, Kayiira Gajuule had invited Bishop Emeritus John Baptist Kaggwa the retired Bishop of Masaka Diocese to grace the thanksgiving ceremony when anti-riot police stormed the area and sprayed teargas to disperse everyone.

This incident has since drawn widespread criticism from both Buganda kingdom loyalists who have since marched to Bulange Mengo demanding an apology from the Police besides the public condemning police actions

Just yesterday afternoon,. Police were forced to use teargas and live bullets to disperse a group of Buganda loyalists at Mityana municipality protesting the incident and demanding that District Police Commander, Alex Mwine Mukono unconditionally releases all the motorcycles he confiscated during the raid.

This compelled the police boss IGP Martin Okoth Ochola to apologize to the bishop and the Catholic Church.

The police political commissar led by a team of senior officers announced that they would be visiting Bishop Kaggwa at his home to announce their apology to his family and the church on behalf of IGP Ochola .

On Monday, the police spokesperson Fred Enanga apologized to the Catholic Church defending the police action on preventing the spread of COVID19.

He said the firing of teargas was caused by a group of uninvited politicians including Francis Zaake among others who had attracted youth.

Now according to the Buganda kingdom spokesperson Noah Kiyimba, a meeting between the Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga and the top police leadership is scheduled for 11:00 am at Bulange Mengo.
