BY: Eyalama In News On

A ballistic expert has told Court that gunshot residues were found on the clothes belonging to Matthew Kanyamunyu.

Gunshot residues are deposited on the hands and clothes of someone who discharges a firearm.

Kanyamunyu and his girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari are on trial for the murder of child rights activist Kenneth Akena.

On Friday, Ms Robinah Kirinya a Principal Analyst from the Government Analytical Laboratory in Kampala, told court that she examined exhibits like Kanyamunyu’s car, and in the glove compartment, where he allegedly hid the killer gun that is still missing.

“The bullet was fired from a 0.22 firearm such as a pistol or a revolver,” Ms Kirinya told trial judge Stephen Mubiru.

Ms Kirinya said that when she examined the clothes, components of gunshot residues were found around the edge and inside the right pocket of Kanyamunyu’s pair of trousers and on the right-hand breast part of his long-sleeved sky blue shirt.

After displaying the items in court, Kanyamunyu’s lawyer Caleb Alaka told court that it was their first time to see the items because they have never been disclosed to them.

Mr Alaka asked Justice Steven Mubiru for more time to consult his clients as to whether they should be accepted as evidence in the matter.
