Kasiwukira was on October 17, 2014 knocked down by a speeding car as he jogged in Muyenga
The trial of three suspected killers of slain city businessman Eria Ssebunya Bugembe alias Kasiwukira stalled on Monday at the High Court due to the absence of the presiding Judge.
The trio, Sarah Nabikolo, 62, the widow of the slain businessman, her cousin sister Sandra Nakungu, 36, and a police officer Ashraf Jaden, 40, are battling charges of murder. It is alleged that the trio conspired to kill Kasiwukira.
Justice Wilson Masalu Musene, the head of Criminal division of the High Court ordered the court registrar to postpone the hearing of the case to June 20th because he is handling election petitions.
The trio was indicted with the offence of murder contrary to section 188 and 189 of the Penal Code Act (PCA). Any person who is convicted of murder faces a maximum penalty of death.
Prosecution states that Kasiwukira was on October 17, 2014 reportedly murdered at about 6:00 am in Muyenga diplomatic zone.
It is purported that he was knocked down by a speeding car as he jogged in the neighborhood of Muyenga.
