A Court in Kampala on Monday charged city tycoon Desh Kananura with the murder of his former employee and remanded to Luzira Prison.
City Hall Grade I Magistrate Juliet Hatang charged Kananura with the murder of Badru Katerega and sent him to Luzira Prison until February 12 when he is expected to reappear in Court.
Kananura who is alleged to have participated in the torture of Katerega leading to his death at Panamera Bar and Restaurant in Naguru, a Kampala suburb denied involvement.
Kananura was arrested last Thursday at Entebbe International Airport after arriving from the United Kingdom though he refuted allegations he had fled the country to avoid arrest.
Mr Kananura was taken back to Panamera Bar at the weekend where the crime allegedly happened to help police detectives reconstruct the scene of crime.
It is alleged Mr Kananura, his brother Mr Raymond Kananura, and others still at large beat to death Katerega after he was found with an amount of money (Shs 30,000) exceeding that allowed to be held by any worker on duty in their bar.
The Other suspects are Cyrus Maganda, Samuel Muzulewa and Jacob Onyango.
Mr Kenneth Kirenzi, another bar attendant, was also beaten with a gun butt and is admitted to a hospital in Namirembe, Kampala receiving treatment.
