The long awaited hearing and judgement of the suspected murderer of Bushenyi tycoon John Hedex Rwamutwe failed to take off today because the suspect Kansiime Alvin alias Jakoda changed his plea before Justice DR. Flavian Zeija.
Court led by Flavian Zeija heard that on 3rd may 2017 while in Tankhill Bushenyi, Kansiime beat Rwamutwe using a car jerk.
It also heard that after beating him,Kansiime put him into his car and murdered him from Ibanda district where he dumped his body.
His defence lawyer sought 2 minutes of permission from the judge to speak to his client privately of which the family of the deceased did not agree and thus requested the state attorney to also be part of the conversation.
Family members and relatives who were packed in court to hear the verdict of Kansiime were shocked when the suspect refused to talk court though he had agreed to 10 years during the plea bargaining
The case was adjourned to any convenient date for further hearing. .
