Uganda: Court Sets Hearing Date for Entebbe, Nansana Women Murder Case

10 December 2018

Kampala — The trial of three people arrested in connection with last year's infamous women murders in Entebbe and Nansana in Wakiso District has been fixed on January 4, 2019.

Last week, Kampala High Court judge, Wilson Kwesiga threatened to release the suspects- Ivan Katongole; a businessman dealing in fish export at Kasenyi landing site in Katabi town council in Wakiso District, one Andrew Kizito and Hellen Nabaggala- from jail if the state was not ready to prosecute them.

However, state attorney Edward Baguma informed court today (Monday) that the case had been cause-listed for hearing on a date convenient to court.

The judge then fixed the case for hearing on January 4, 2019 and appointed three assessors to follow the trial on behalf of the public.

The suspects were arrested last year for the alleged murder of Rose Nakimuli; a former hair dresser of Kitala zone in Katabi town council in Wakiso District.

According to the summary of evidence presented to court on Monday morning, Nakimuli's lifeless body was discovered in a banana plantation with sticks stuffed in her private parts a day after her disappearance on July 24, 2017.

Katongole and his co-accused who have already pleaded not guilty to the charges were further remanded to Kigo Prison until when the trial starts.
