Court Extends Criminal Summons For Widow Charged with Murder of Husband Henry Katanga

In a recent development in the case involving the alleged murder of businessman Henry Katanga on November 2, 2023, the Nakawa Chief Magistrate's Court has extended criminal summons for Molly Katanga and her daughter Martha Nkwanzi. The two are accused of the murder and will now appear in court on January 8, 2024, to answer charges of destroying evidence.

The court had initially issued criminal summons against Molly Katanga and her daughter Martha Nkwanzi, as well as another daughter, Patricia Kakwanzi, and George Amanyire, the Shamba boy who was present at Katanga's home during the time of his death.

According to court records, the alleged murder took place on November 2, 2023, at Katanga's residence on Mbuya Chwa II Road, Nakawa Division in Kampala. Despite being ordered to appear in court on December 34 by Chief Magistrate Erias Kakooza, Molly Katanga and Martha Nkwanzi were absent.

In court, their legal representatives, including Elison Karuhanga, Bruce Musinguzi, and Jet Tumwebaze, explained that Molly and Martha were still hospitalized separately at International Hospital in Kampala and Roswell Women in Kampala, respectively. The lawyers informed the court that Molly had sustained brain injuries on November 2, 2023, and had been advised to continue her treatment under medical supervision.

The defense assured the court that the suspects would be presented to face all charges once they have sufficiently recovered. However, prosecutors, led by Mariam Kulthum, sought a warrant of arrest against Molly Katanga and Martha Nkwanzi, arguing that they had deliberately ignored the court summons. Kulthum emphasized that investigations into the case were still ongoing.
