Court Advised to Convict Killer Mom Kayaga

Accused Edith Kayaga being led to Court cells by a prison warder

Court assessors in the case where Edith Kayaga is accused of three murder counts have advised Nakawa High court Judge Wilson Masalu Museni to convict the accused because the state prosecution proved
beyond reasonable doubt that she participated in the murder of two of her children and her Husband Ismail Kawooya.

Both the assessors Nakayima Oliver and Dennis Ssemakalu agreed that the evidence that was brought by the state prosecution to pin Kayaga brought out clearly all ingredients in the counts against the accused.
Among other factors cited were the pictures presented by Police Officer Joseph Otim, nurse information pills showing the bodies of the deceased. These were corroborated with the evidence of one of Kayaga’s step daughter who revealed that her father died in fire together with her two brothers.

Kayaga’s 9 year old biological son Akram Senfuka also told court that he saw her mother late in the
night hiding fuel which he referred to as paraffin in the fridge that was in the sitting room; the place which police referred to as the origin for the fire.

However, the defense counsel Anthony Wameli has described the Assessors’ opinion as unfair information that lacked facts but only made with a target of convicting his client.

“The assessors opinion is not final so, I am not worried because the judge may neglect it depending on his decision and set the accused free, but once he convicts my client we shall appeal against his
judgment” Wameli added.

The Judge has set the November 13 as the day to pronounce his judgment on this case.
