Uganda: Entebbe women killings: Court acquits suspects

The High Court in Kampala has acquitted three people who had been accused of murder following last year’s infamous Entebbe and Nansana women killings.

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 have been on trial for the murder of one Rose Nakimuli, a hairdresser in Entebbe, Wakso District.

However, the trial judge Wilson Kwesiga on Thursday morning said all the seven prosecution witnesses presented in court did not give any substantial evidence linking the suspects to Nakimuli’s murder.

In his ruling, Justice Kwesiga further noted that “police did a bad job by failing to investigate the case and therefore, the suspects have no case to answer.

Katongole, Kizito and Nabaggala had been accused of killing Nakimuli, a resident of Kitala village in Katabi Town Council.
Nakimuli’s body was discovered in a banana plantation with sticks stuffed in her private parts a day after her murder on July 24, 2017.
