Almost 2 months since the alleged murder of Social worker Kenneth Akena by Mathew Kayamunyu, more about police has not concluded investigations so as to enable the matter to be forwarded to the High Court for trial.

On Tuesday, sales for the second time, the State prosecutor Racheal Nabwire like the previous time last year, told court that they need more time  to conclude investigations into the case that was supposed to go for mention at the Nakawa magistrate’s court.

“We pray for an adjournment because are still doing investigations into the matter,” Nabwire told court on Tuesday morning.

Nakawa Grade one Magistrate Noah Ssajjabi adjourned the case to January 17.

The suspects who were charged with murder on November 4 await mention of their case by the Magistrates Court before their file is forwarded to the High Court where they will battle the charges since the lower court has no jurisdiction to hear such a case.
