Musa Kirya, a Senior Government forensic
analyst has placed Ibrahim Kaweesa alias Tetemwe at the second scene of the infamous
Wakiso women murders. Kirya pinned Kaweesa while appearing before lady justice,
Damali Lwanga on Tuesday afternoon.
Kaweesa was found guilty of murdering Annet
Nakabugo on September 23, 2019 and handed a life sentence. However, prosecution
led by Senior State Attorney, Ivan Ndiwalawa slapped him with fresh charges of
murdering Stella Nanfuma.
Prosecution told court that on May 25, 2017
while in Kakiri in Wakiso district, Kaweesa together with three others
including Eric Ssegawa, Isma Nyanzi, Suhairi Wakita and others still at large strangled
Nanfuma to death after having sex with her.
Although Kaweesa wasn’t on the initial group of suspects arrested
in connection to the murder, investigations by police linked him to the case. His
DNA samples were analyzed to ascertain whether it matched with other pieces of
evidence recovered from the crime scene.
Kirya told court that upon analyzing the biological material
recovered from the deceased and the scene of crime, which includes the deceased
virginal swap, nails, jacket and used condom among others, they were in harmony
with the Kaweesa’s DNA sample.
“Your honor, the suspects DNA samples were matching with
several biological materials submitted to the Directorate of Government
Analytical Laboratory for analysis. His DNA was found in the mixed profile of
the virginal swap got from the deceased,” Kirya told court while explaining his
Besides Kaweesa, Kirya also said the biological
materials more so those got from the condom that was collected from the scene
matched the DNA samples of Wakita, which shows that the two could have heard
sex with the deceased before her death. But Wakita used a condom.
Kirya noted that he failed to track any
substance matching the third suspect Eric Ssegawa. He also noted that he couldn’t
conduct DNA analysis for Isma Nyanzi given the fact that he didn’t receive any
samples from the suspect in question.
Justice Lwanga adjourned the matter for further
hearing on December 3 when prosecution will present other witnesses. More
than 19 women were killed in the murders that occurred in Entebbe, Katabi and
Nansana in Wakiso district between May and September 2017.
The lifeless bodies of the victims were found
dumped by the roadside and sticks inserted in their vaginas. Kaweesa is linked
to the murder of eight women in Nansana. They include among others Juliet
Nampijja, Patricia Nansubuga, Maria Birungi, Josephine Nakazibwe, Teddy Nakacwa,
Juliet Kyandali, Gorreti Nansubuga and Annet Nakabugo.
Several people were picked up by police in connection to the
murders. However, the Director of Public Prosecution dropped charges against 12
suspects including Tina Prosper Nantongo, the wife to Kaweesa.
