court-8956c45d

Justice Yasin Nyanzi has convicted four people for the murder of Francis Ekalungar, the former accountant of Case Hospital and aggravated robbery.

The convicts are Muzamiru Mawa, Resty Nalunga, Deogratius Yiga and Huzairu Kiwalabye.

Yiga and Kiwalabye were Chairmen for Boda boda riders in Wakaliga and Busega respectively while Nalunga is Mawa’s wife.

Ekalungar went missing on January 2nd, 2018 and his body was later found in Kajjansi Town Council, Wakiso district burnt beyond recognition.

Mawa, who was convicted on his own plea of guilt, was the driver to Dr. Ssebale Kato, the Proprietor of Case Hospital. 

While convicting the accused during the High court criminal session sitting in the Entebbe Chief Magistrate’s court, Justice Yasin Nyanzi noted that prosecution has also proved beyond reasonable doubt that Nalunga, Kiwalabye and Yiga were involved in both offences.

He noted that even if Mawa has not pleaded guilty, the state had incriminating evidence against him and the other accused individuals. 

The convicts were meant to return this morning to court for sentencing but by press time the court had not sat.
