Matthew Kanyamunyu has been sentenced to 5 years plus one month after he entered into a plea bargain with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), to the charge of manslaughter in exchange for a lighter sentence. High Court Judge Steven Mubiru passed the verdict.

Kanyamunyu is said to have made a confession to the murder of  Kenneth Akena Watmon, at a meeting presided over by Acholi Paramount Chief David Onen  Acana II as a chief witness at the Ker Kwaro Acholi. 

Kanyamunyu, in the company of his girlfriend, Cynthia Munwangari,  murdered Kenneth Akena, a children rights activist on November 12, 2016 and has since been in out of court battling with the charges along side his girlfriend, Cynthia.
