By Sania Babirye
High court justice Wilson Kwesiga has acquitted Kampala bussinesman Ivan Kamyuka of murdering his colleague Ahimbisibwe Johnnie at club Guvnor in Kampala in August 2015 but found him guilty of manslaughter.
While convicting him of Manslaughter, justice Kwesiga ruled that Kamyuka used excessive force while attacking Ahimbisibwe.
Justice Kwesiga explained that the convict ignored the role of other mediators such as Security and other dancers at the night club who tried to repel him against the deceased who had attacked his lover also lady at centre of contention Nima Nyarwaka a former wife to the deceased whom he had a seven year old son with.
The judge has however aquitted him of murdering the deceased on grounds that he did not intend or willfully kill the deceased and that Kamyuka acted in self-defense of his lover after Ahimbisibwe attacked her first by calling her insulting words like prostitute, bitch and injured her face, lips, teeth and hands when he broke a glass in front of her.
The judge has further ruled that any reasonable spouse would have used any deadly force to repel attack against his partner and that Ahimbisibwe did provoke Kamyuka by violently assaulting and abusing his lover and as a result he was entitled to defend her.
Justice Kwesiga has also taken into account evidence seduced by the defense showing that the deceased was a violent man whose violent behavior led to him being deported from Sweden and the fact that his former lover divorced him in 2013 as a result of his violent behavior.
He also ruled that Ahimbisibwe Johnnie unlawfully died of excessive bleeding due to a deep cut wound he sustained on the neck as a result of an assault on 2nd of August 2015 at Glub Guvnor.
He has now cancelled Kamyuka’s bail and set this afternoon to hand him his sentence.
