Hussein Badru Were, the father of Badru Kateregga, the waiter who was allegedly murdered by Desh Kananura the proprietor of Panamera Bar in Naguru last year told journalists yesterday at Kampala City Court that he expects justice for his son who left behind three children.
Speaking to journalists on Jan.21, Were recounted how his son had only just moved to Kampala to look for a job and when he found it, he had called his father telling him about his fortune. Three weeks into his new job, Were received the sad news of his son's death.
Were said he remembers his son telling him that although the pay was not sufficient, he was contented with what he got (job).
Meanwhile, Desh Kananura, the prime suspect in Kateregga's death appeared before city magistrate, Juliet Hatang on Jan.21 and denied murdering his youthful employee. Kananura is alleged to have tortured Kateregga to death over a Shs 30,000 tip he got from customers last October.
He also denied eluding Police after his alleged involvement in the murder received sustained press coverage last year.
"I never eluded Police arrest as they claim. I travelled to Kenya, Dubai and UK on my normal business trips. I was surprised when the Police arrested me at the airport on my return (Jan.19), linking me to the murder," Kananura said.
Kananura was remanded to Luzira Prison until Feb. 12 when he will re-appear in court.
