The High court in Kampala has ordered Desh Kananura, the proprietor of Panamera bar in Kampala to defend himself against allegations of murder. Kananura is accused of killing his former employee Badru Kateregga in 2013.
The Presiding Judge Joseph Murangira ruled that prosecution has sufficient evidence through eight witnesses to warrant Kananura and four others accused of murder, to explain how Kateregga met his death at the bar.
Court ordered that the accused, who also include Raymond Kananura and three of their guards, should start their defense on Thursday. Prosecution says that the five beat Kateregga to death for allegedly receiving a tip of 10,000 from a client.
As they defend themselves, accused persons have three options to choose from; they can swear an oath and allow to be cross-examined by the prosecution, they can choose not to take oath or they can opt to remain silent and let court make its judgment basing on the evidence on record.
