Matthew Kanyamunyu has been further remanded to Luzira prison until the 20th of this month after prosecution told court that investigations into the matter are still ongoing.
Kanyamunyu , his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu and his girl friend Cynthia Munwagari appeared today before Nakawa grade one Magistrate Nuwa Sajjabi. They are charged with the murder of Kenneth Akena at Lugogo forest mall last month.
The same court has dismissed a request by Kanyamunyu’s lawyer to throw out journalists from the courtroom during the trial and instead cover the proceeding from outside. Lawyer Grace Karuhanga accused the media denying her clients breathing space and suffocating them by surrounding off the dock where the accused stand during the hearing and taking their pictures. The magistrate has just cautioned the media not to misbehave while covering these court proceedings
