A case, in which city businessman Mathew Kanyamunyu and the co-accused are facing murder charges, has been adjourned to December 20, 2016.

Matthew Kanyamunyu, his girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari and his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu are accused of murdering child activist Kenneth Akena.

The trio appeared at Nakawa Magistrates court this morning for hearing of their case in which they are accused of shooting dead Akena at Game Stores on November 12.

It is alleged that they will be allowed to file their defense against the charges on the next court sitting which is December 20.

They were however sent back on remand to Luzira Maximum prison.

Prosecution alleges that on November 12 while at Game Stores, Kanyamunyu in company of his girlfriend, allegedly shot Akena whom he accused of scratching his car, and drove him to Norvik hospital where he died from.

His brother Joseph Kanyamunyu is held on condition that the telecom printouts indicated that he was contacted immediately after the incident, which puts him in position to be having some knowledge on the incident.
