Excitement, tears as court frees murder suspect Mathew Kanyamunyu in Shs10M cash bail

High Court in Kampala was thrown into moments of joy and sorrow after Mathew Kanyamunyu earned himself freedom from Luzira Prison coolers after freezing for months and months.

Mathew together with his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu and girlfriend Cynthia Mwangari are accused of murdering social worker Kenneth Akena.

High Court judge Wilson Kwesiga granted Mathew 10,000,000 cash bail after he presented sureties Wednesday.

Justices Oumo Oguli and Yasin Nyanzi had handed Joseph and Cythia bail but denied the businessman in the previous four attempts he tried to secure freedom.

Mathew presented his aunties Sebunya Amerian and Stella Karuhanga, cousin Emmy Karuhanga and uncle Julius Kanyamunyu as sureties.

The mood in the courtroom was a mixed one with the Kanyamunyu family punching in the air with joy while the Akena sympathisers left empty.
