High Court Judge Moses Kawumi Kazibwe has ordered Brian Bagyenda indicted with the murder of his fiancé to defend himself over the allegations.
On Friday, Justice Kazibwe ruled that prosecution had established a prima facie case against Bagyenda and his co-accused Innocent Bainomugisha and Vincent Rwahwire.
“I find that the prosecution has made out a prima facie case warranting each of the accused to defend himself over the allegations,” Kazibwe ruled.
Brian is a son to Internal Security Organisation boss, Col. (Rtd) Frank Kaka Bagyenda.
Prosecution led by Joseph Kyomuhendo and Joan Keko alleges that the trio and others still at large on January 13, 2017, killed Enid Twijukye and later dumped her body at Namanve Forest Reserve in Wakiso district.
Brian was arrested on January 18, 2017, after telephone print outs from the deceased’s mobile phone showed that he was the last person she frequently called before her mysterious disappearance.
Court documents indicate that Twijukye, a daughter of Wilson Tibegaya, a headteacher at Karobwa Education Centre died after being raped.
Twijukye lived with her sister in Namugongo, Wakiso district but she is said to have left home on a fateful day to visit her unidentified friend in Bweyogerere.
The following day the deceased’s phones went off, prompting her mother to contact family members about her whereabouts.
Police recovered Twijukye’s decomposing body in Namanve Forest after the family had reported her missing.
At the time of death, Twijukye was working at Capital Shoppers in Ntinda and was due for graduation at Ndejje University.NV
