Court sets trial date for city businessman Desh

Nakawa High Court has set November 6 to start the trial of city businessman, Mr Andrew Kananura Desh who is accused of murdering his employee Badru Kateregga two years ago.
Mr Desh is charged with four others, who include his brother Raymond Kananura, Cyrus Maganda, Samuel Muzulewa and Jacob Onyango.
The suspects’ lawyer Mr Geoffrey Kandeebe told court on Monday that the state had not disclosed to any witness statements, as required by law and so he had no clue how to defend his clients.

Justice Masalu Musene adjourned the trial and ordered the state prosecutor Ms Samali Wakholi to avail the intended evidence to the defence lawyer.
Prosecution alleges that on September 31, 2012 at Mr Desh’s Panamera Bar, the accused beat and killed Kateregga, a bar attendant, over Shs30, 000 the deceased had received as a tip from a customer.
On January 19, 2013 Mr Desh who had left the country after Kateregga’s death, was arrested at Entebbe Airport on his return from the UK.
Three days later, he was charged and remanded to Luzira Prison for murder. In February 2013 the High Court released Mr Desh on bail of Shs20m.
