Members of Parliament from Northern Uganda led by Hon. Odonga Otto and Beatrice Anywar today morning busted into tears, threw earth on their heads as they cursed after seeing the wife to the Former presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye, Winnie Byanyima at the court ready to rescue her nephew Matthew Kanyamunyu who murdered Akena late last year.
Odonga Otto, Beatrice Anywar were some of the various politicians, friends and relatives of Akena who were weeping and crying terribly at court as they saw Winnie Byanyima arrive and enter the court in her blue bitenge dress.
Otto who looked as if he was ready to assault Winnie if it wasn’t the tight security at the court kept crossing words to Engineer, the Director of Oxfam Intentional, who kept mute but looked puzzled. He was saying that Besigye should have at least waited for the government to finish investigations before he sends his wife to intervene in the Kanyamunyu –Akena Case.
On November 12, Matthew Kanyamunyu a nephew to Winnie Byanyima shot dead Keneth Akena after scratching his car in the parking. He was arrested and since then, he together with his girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari and his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu have been in prison. Today, Winnie Byanyima who had once tweeted that Justice should prevail in this case is one of the sureties to help Kanyamunyu get bail.
Here is the video as Northern Uganda MPs cry in court.
