Nsenga’s Widow Finally Appears In Court

view geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 115%;”>Uwera appeared Monday morning before Her Worship Sylvia Nabagala at Nakawa Magistrates Court for mention of the charges against her.

Murder was the charge read to her by Elima Doreen, a court clerk.

The Judge has sent her to Luzira prison where she will spend almost a month pending the hearing of her case.

Uwera has been in detention at the Special Investigations Unit at Kireka since February 2, 2013.

This followed the death of her husband, Juvenal Nsenga who was allegedly knocked dead by a car driven by Uwera at the entrance of their marital home in Bugolobi, a Kampala suburb.

During the requiem mass of Nsenga at Christ the King Church in Kampala back in February, some of the family members appeared to believe that the death had been an accident.

The sister to the deceased shed tears in front of church saying, “Jackie, I know it is hurting and painful but I’m not angry with you and I have promised myself not to judge you. I know it was an accident.”

A teary Uwera in her requiem speech also told mourners that while many people may not believe in her innocence, God knows that she could not have killed the father of her children.

“When I was driving him to hospital, I kept on telling him to forgive me and he said it was okay,” Uwera said. She claimed the accident was not intentional.

However, Nsenga’s brothers, Innocent Bisangwa and Joseph Kananura pressured police to produce Uwera in court.

Kananura in his affidavit said that when he arrived at Paragon hospital, his brother who was in a sorry state told him, “my wife has killed me at my home.”

Following investigations, the police forwarded the file to the DPP who preferred murder charges against Uwera.

Apparently dissatisfied with this verdict, the police petitioned the Attorney General, Peter Nyombi, seeking legal advice as Uwera remained in detention.
