Court has further remanded businessman Matthew Kanyamunyu and his co-accused to Luzira Prisons over alleged murder of Kenneth Watmon Akena.
Nakawa Grade One Magistrate, Noah Ssajjabi, on Tuesday further remanded the accused to Luzira Prisons after state prosecutor, Rachael Nabwire, told court that investigations in the murder case are still on-going.
"The matter is coming to court for mention but I pray that it is adjourned," she requested.
This prompted the magistrate to remand the accused until January 3, 2017 when they will re-appear in court for mention of the case.
Kanyamunyu, 39, the executive director of Quantum Express Logistics appeared in court alongside his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu, 40, and Cynthia Munwangari, 26. The accused have spent a month in Luzira.

The accused are battling charges of murder contrary to section 188 and 189 of the Penal Code Act (PCA). According to the Act, any person convicted of murder faces a death penalty.
