Nakawa Magistrate’s Court has today further remanded ISO boss Col Frank Kaka Bagyenda’s son Brian Bagyenda to Luzira Prison over murder of His girlfriend.
Bagyenda, the prime suspect in the murder of 22-year-old Enid Twijukye, a former student of Ndejje University has so far spent two months on remand at Luzira Prison.
Grade One Magistrate Margaret Aanyu further remanded Brian to Luzira, where he will spend two more weeks before he is produced in court for mention of his case. His remand was prompted by State prosecutor, Joyce Anyango, informing court that investigations were incomplete.
Bagyenda 29, is accused along with Vicent Rwahire 28, and Innocent Bainomugisha 24.
Prosecution alleges that the accused, on January 4, 2017, at Njobe Poad plot 2, Luzira, Nakawa division in Kampala district, with malice aforethought, unlawfully caused the death of Twijukye.
On January 18th, Police arrested Bagyenda and his co-accused after telephone printouts from the mobile phone of the deceased showed that he was the last person to speak to Twijukye before she disappeared mysteriously from her home. She was murdered and her body dumped in Seeta, Mukono District. Twijukye lived with her sister in Namugongo, Kira Municipality, Wakiso District. On the eve of the fateful day, she left home and told her sister she was going to visit someone in Bweyogerere. The following day the deceased’s phones went off, prompting her mother Esther Mirembe Nkoko to contact her other daughters about her whereabouts. Later, Police recovered Twijukye’s decomposing body in Namanve Forest, 11km away from the murder scene. At the time of death, Twijukye was working at Capital Shoppers in Ntinda and was due for graduation.
