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.
Cynthia Munwangari has been set free by the court after the DPP withdrew the charges after against her.
