High court in Kampala has asked Sarah Nabikolo, the wife to the late businessman Eriya Bugembe Sebunya to explain why the death of her husband occurred just after the late hired someone to follow her movements.
This was after court on Thursday found Nabikolo and her sister with a case to answer.
Jaden Ashraf a police officer also has a case to answer.
A prosecution witness in April told court that they were hired by one of the suspects, Jaden, to kill Kasiwukira.
Geoffrey Awilo, 30, a porter at 7th Street Industrial Area was testifying in the trial in which the late Kasiwukira’s widow Sarah Nabikolo is accused of his murder alongside her sister Sandra Nakungu and Jaden, a policeman formerly deployed at Muyenga Community Police Station.
Awilo added: “… one day Jaden sent Adonyo to pick me up. Together we went to Jaden’s home near International Hospital and he rode us on his motor cycle up to Muyenga, a city suburb, and showed us the rich man’s (Kasiwukira) home.”
Awilo added: “Jaden took us to that home to see the person we were to kill. He told us that he had been assigned the duty to assassinate by the wife of the rich man. She needed to get rid of her husband as he had acquired some evil spirits that wanted to kill her children.”
“So Jaden gave Adonyo a panga and told us to hide in a nearby banana plantation at about 8pm to wait for the rich man’s return home in a car. The orders were that Jaden had to show up with his gun and threaten the driver to stop, I was to open the car door and pull him (Kasiwukira) out then Adonyo was to cut him to pieces,” Awilo narrated.
He is the 16th witness to testify in the case before Justice Masalu Musene at the High Court in Kampala. Awilo told court that their mission aborted because when the vehicle in which the late Kasiwukira was being chauffeured approached their hideout, his driver sped past them and entered the gate.
The witness claimed that Jaden had told them that Nabikolo had promised to give each Shs 20 million and a car upon accomplishing the mission.
Another witness, John Bosco Kimasule, a boda boda rider, told court that Nakungu promised give him money not to disclose that he saw her Pajero car Reg No UAE 018A near the scene of crime hours before the killing of Kasiwukira.
Kimasule recalled that on the fateful morning of October 17, 2014 as he was riding a client he saw the deceased moving out of his gate and slopping towards Diplomat Road in Muyenga.
He said after dropping his client he returned to the boda boda stage and on his way he saw Nakungu’s vehicle near a field close to the deceased’s home.
Kimasule told court that upon looking critically at the car he saw Jaden seated in the driver’s seat, wearing dark sunglasses.
However, during cross-examination, defence lawyer, MacDusman Kabega put it to Kimasule that that he telling court lies as he was bitter that his intimate relationship with Nakungu was short-lived.
