Nakawa High Court has declined to grant bail to Kampala businesswoman Jacqueline Uwera Nsenga, who is accused of killing her husband.
High Court judge Wilson Masalu-Musene denied Uwera bail on grounds that she produced two unsubstantial sureties in court.
The sureties include Henry Katanga, LC1 chairman Bugolobi flats and Albert Murari, director of Kenlloyd Logistics Limited – both cousins of the accused.
The trial judge said the suspect did not avail exceptional circumstances in her bail application such as gravity illness or advanced age.
The judge added that the suspect would interfere with prosecution witnesses during trial and may abscond from court if granted bail.
Uwera was apprehended from her residence on 2nd February and taken into police custody until July 15 when she was arraigned in court, charged with murder of her husband, and later remanded at Luzira prison.
Prosecution alleges that on January, 10th Uwera Nsenga knocked her husband Juvenal Nsenga Kananura dead at the entrance of their home.
Uwera, through her lawyers Nsubuga Mubiru and Isaac Walukaga, filed a bail application last month seeking her release pending hearing of the murder charge.
She is will appear at the Chief Magistrate’s Court this Friday for committal to High Court.
