Juvenile Nsenga Kananura’s last words were “my wife has killed me in my own home," his brother, Moses Kananura, has told court.

According to Kananura, the deceased told him that Jackline Uwera had knocked him as he was opening the gate for her.

The deceased made theses statements at Paragon Hospital where he was admitted before he passed on.

Kananura, who was testifying as the fourth prosecution witness, told court presided over by Kampala High court judge Duncan Kaswaga that the late told him to get all his car keys and phone from his wife and asked him to ensure safe custody of all his properties.

“As I entered Paragon Hospital, I meet Jackline and Inspector General of Police's wife, Angela Kayihura, seated at the reception and I proceeded to the admission room and found blood dripping all over the deceased's body with a twisted leg. His one ear was also off,” Kananura told court the chilling details.

He said when he reached the deceased’s house to pick the ear; he did not see any damage at the gate. He also said the car was in proper condition.

Meanwhile, the father of the deceased, Darnet Kananura, told court that the marriage between the couple had become quite turbulent at an early stage.

Darnet said that he received complaints from the deceased pertaining his wife’s late coming (night) and failure to do domestic work at home.

“When my son told me of their marriage problems, I called Uwera and requested her to listen to her husband but she refused,” Darnet said, testifying as the third prosecution witness in court.

A police pathologist, Dr. Moses Byaruhanga told court that the death came as a result of multiple blunt force injuries that the deceased incurred when the accused dragged him against a rough surface.

He testified as the first prosecution witness in court.
