The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has summoned 20 witnesses including five engineers to testify against Kampala business woman Jackline Uwera Nsenga accused of killing her husband.

Yesterday, senior principal state attorney Susan Okalany told court presided over by Justice Duncan Kaswaga that the engineers examined the gate that was allegedly knocked by the suspect.

“My lord the number of witnesses is swelling every day ready to testify against the suspect,” she said. She added that the scene of crime report will also be presented in court to act as evidence.

Uwera is alleged to have driven over her husband

Okalany said the police did not properly record witness statements that is why she wants them to appear in court and testify.

Meanwhile, the trial judge adjourned the case to today (Thursday) for hearing.

Uwera appeared before High court in Kampala to answer charges of murder. The charge attracts a death penalty sentence on conviction. She pleaded not guilty to the crime.

Prosecution alleges that on January 10, 2013, Uwera returned at their home in Bugolobi at around 9:00pm, parked her vehicle Reg. N0. UAL 933M outside the main gate and pressed the bell.

It furthure alleges that in response her late husband walked towards the gate and opened for her to effect entry but the accused instead accelerated her vehicle  past the gate, knocked him down and dragged him for some considerable distance along the concrete pavement, leading to Juvenile Nsenga Kananura’s death.

Prosecution furthur alleges that the marriage between the couple had become quite turbulent and the accused (Uwera) had on several occasions issued specific and general threats against her late husband.
