Desh Kananura Out On Bail

purchase geneva;”>Desh’s lawyers led by Geoffrey Kandeebe last Friday applied for his bail on health grounds.

They argued Desh was diabetic, adding, his continued detention would put his life in jeopardy.

The car dealer is on trial for reportedly murdering his barman, Badru Kateregga, at Panamera Bar and Restaurant in Kampala last year. He denied the charges.

He was arrested in January at Entebbe International Airport upon arrival from London where he was reportedly hiding.

City Hall Court judge Lameka Mukasa on Monday said the sureties presented by Desh among whom is Prof. Mondo Kagonyera, Vice Chancellor Makerere University, Richard Muhinda, a presidential advisor on Public Service and Tom Mugenga, Director Crane Bank, were substantial.

Lameka said though Desh was charged while out of the country, he took an initiative and responded to the court charges.

Desh was instructed to report to the court on February 12 for mention of his case and to deposit his passport with court.

He was also instructed to report to the Police Special Investigations Unit once a month.

Desh was sternly warned against absconding from court sessions.

The suspect later appeared before the Buganda Road Court to answer separate charges of obtaining money by false pretence.
