Nyeko told court that he later received a phone call from his other brother identified as Jordan indicating that Akena had been shot and was admitted at Nakasero hospital. According to Nyeko, he rushed to Nakasero hospital and found the gate locked and was only allowed in after identifying himself as Akena's brother.
He explained that while at Nakasero hospital, Kanyamunyu asked him if he was the one who had called Jordan before he informed him of Akena’s condition, saying he had rushed the deceased to hospital as a Good Samaritan after being shot at Kyadondo.
Nyeko said he left Kanyamunyu and stormed into the emergency ward where he found two doctors attending to Akena. He explained that Akena who was still able to speak told him that the man who brought him to hospital, Kanyamunyu had shot him at Game Store parking space as he was trying to apologise for scratching his vehicle.
According to Nyeko, he was then taken to Wandegeya Police Division later where he recorded a statement together with the accused persons before returning to the shooting scene to search for Akena's vehicle, which was still parked opposite Malik car bond.
He explained that when he returned to Nakasero hospital, doctors informed him that they had concluded the first procedure to save Akena’s life and transferred him to Norvik hospital where he breathed his last a few hours later because their intensive care unit (ICU) was filled to capacity.
Nyeko revealed that while at Norvik hospital, two gentlemen who identified themselves as Joseph and Moses approached him, saying they were willing to help Akena’s relatives to clear the medical bills and they exchanged contacts. He, however, said the men didn’t show up again after Akena was pronounced dead.
The witness disclosed that after Akena’s funeral, he was taken to police parades at Jinja road and Kira road police stations to identify the men he had met at the hospital. He was reportedly able to identify the accused persons and Akena's belongings including keys, two mobile phones, and shoes that were reportedly recovered from Kanyamunyu’s car.
Earlier on, Rose Kadde, a groundnut hawker and an eyewitness told court that while winding up her business on the fateful day, she saw a medium-sized man and woman from a Land Cruiser charging towards a man in a smaller car.
Court adjourned the hearing to allow for other prosecution witnesses to testify in the matter. Prosecution alleges that on November 12, 2016 along Kampala-Jinja highway near Malik car bond, opposite the main gate of Uganda Manufacturer’s Association in Lugogo Nakawa Division, the accused persons shot dead Akena.
The accused pleaded not guilty, saying they only helped to rush the deceased to court when they found him injured.
