Kanyamunyu murder case hearing adjourned over lack of ‘satisfying’ French interpreter.
Thursday Jan 9,2020.
The murder trial of Businessman Mathew Kanyamunyu and his girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari over the unlawful death of Social Worker Kenneth Akena has been pushed to 4th/February/2020, to allow their lawyers look for a suitable French interpreter in consultation with the Court Registrar in charge of criminal matters.
Accused 3 (A3) Joseph Kanyamunyu didn’t appear in court because he is reportedly sick,but this won’t save him from prosecution as special date will be set.
Presiding Judge Stephen Mubiru adjourned the trial after one of the accused persons in the case Cynthia Munwangari indicated that the French interpreter Jean Nyabirongo is not fluent enough to her satisfaction.
The complaint arose during the postmortem report testimony by a pseudo prosecution witness where interpretation of the medical terms became a centre of contention between the accused person and the interpreter prompting her demand for another one.
In his testimony, the pseudo witness testified that the cause of Kenneth Akena’s death was due to a gunshot wound, that was directed to his chest below the left nipple and the black bullet with a flat top was recovered in the rectum.
That the deceased lost a lot of blood due to some damaged internal organs.
This in a postmortem report he says he made on 13th/November/2016 a day after the alleged murder.
The incident occurred on 12th/November/2016 at Lugogo along Kampala-Jinja High way.
