BY: Eyalama In News On

Mathew Kanyamunyu has been convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to 5 years in prison for the reportedly killing social worker Kenneth Akena in 2016.

Kanyamunyu was handed the sentence on his own guilty plea, following a plea deal with the Directorate of Public Prosecution.

In several court appearances Kanyamunyu, together with his Burundian girlfriend Cythia Munwangari had denied shooting to death in a parking altercation back in 2016, the former recently decided to rescind the plea.

This followed a meeting he had with clan leaders of the later Akena in which he admitted to the murder and asked to be forgiven.

Early this week, Kanyamunyu had asked High Court judge Steven Mubiru to stay his trial until he concludes Mato Oput, a traditional justice system (in Acholi) and plea bargaining with the office of the Director of Public Prosecution.

The DPP’s office elected to withdraw the murder charges against Ms Munwangari.
