In his judgment delivered this afternoon, Justice Moses Kazibwe noted that although the defense lawyers tried to convince court that Bagyenda suffered a disease of mind by the time he committed the crime, both prosecution witnesses including Dr. Santos Ojara and Defense witnesses like Dr Brian Mutamba and Sister. Jane Francis Nantamu agreed that depression is not a permanent condition.
However, Bagyenda, who is the prime suspect, told court through his lawyer, Nsubuga Mubiru that he wouldn’t defend himself. He instead asked court to summon his father, Col Kaka Bagyenda, the Director of Internal Security Organisation, Sister Jane Francis Nantamu and Dr. Brian Mutamba from Butabika National Mental Referral Hospital.
On Wednesday, the police surgeon Dr. Santos Ojara told High Court presided over by Justice, Moses Kazibwe that he examined Bagyenda on January 21st 2017 and found him to be in a sound mental state and had no injuries on his body.
Court also heard from Twijukye's sister, Evas Turigye and her husband, David Obuk that Bagyenda confessed to them about the murder.
The two told court that when they went to Kira Road Police Station to record statements, they asked if they could speak to Bagyenda and were allowed.
