The High Court in Kampala has today adjourned its judgment that will determine the fate of city businessman Andrew Kananura Desh who is accused of murdering his employee Badru Kateregga at Panamera Bar located at Naguru, Kampala.

The judgment has been adjourned to Friday, April 28.

Court has two options to either convict him of the murder charges that attract a maximum penalty of death by hanging or acquit the suspect.

Further, court has an option of lessening his murder charges to man slaughter that attracts a life imprisonment sentence on conviction.

The judgment is expected to be read out by trial judge Joseph Murangira at 2pm.

Last week, two court assessors Mr Robert Kabureta and Ms Rehema Babirye, in their joint lay man’s opinion, advised court to find Kananura not guilty of murdering his employee on grounds that the prosecution had failed to prove its case against him.

The assessors also advised court to acquit the accused on grounds that most of the prosecution witnesses, who testified against them, were basing their testimony on mere hearsay.

Prosecution alleges that on September 30,2012, the accused and others still at large, while at Panamera Bar beat and killed Kateregga, a bar attendant, over Shs30,000 which the deceased had received as a tip from a customer.
