The Justices of the Court of Appeal have promised to deliver ruling in the matter of Nsenga Uwera’s appealing of a murder charge handed her in 2014 on Notice.
The Justices led by Deputy Chief Justice Alphonse Owinny Dollo will deliver ruling swiftly and on notice.
The development comes after the Court of Appeal concluded its hearing of Uwera’s appeal case where she seeks to rescind a maximum conviction handed her back in 2014 by High Court Judge Duncan Gaswaga in the murder of her husband Juvenal Nsenga.
Represented by her lawyer David Mpanga, Uwera asked court to quash both the conviction and sentence from the lower court.
Uwera argues that the judge failed to properly evaluate the evidence brought before him back in 2014 leading to a wrong conclusion.
Uwera further claims that the lower court misunderstood the deceased’s declaration ‘My wife has killed me’ delivered in Kinyarwanda to mean intentional killing.
She holds that there was no malice or forethought in the death of her husband on her side.
Meanwhile, state Prosecutor Josephine Namatovu asked court to maintain the ruling saying all evidence shows that Uwera’s car was in good mechanical condition and as such there was motive to kill Juvenal.
The prosecutor also says on the fateful day the couple had had a fight and Uwera knew the gatekeeper was not around indicating pre-planned murder.
