The family of Juvenal Nsenga, the businessman who was in January this year knocked dead by the wife, is in a legal battle over his estate and other property.
In the early hours of Friday January 11, Nsenga’s wife is said to have been knocked by his wife Jacqueline Uwera as the businessman opened the gate for her at their home in Bugolobi, Kampala. The police and the Directorate of Public Prosecutions have since disagreed on the charges to be preferred against Uwera.
Now the inheritance battle is raging between Nsenga’s father Donati Kananura and his daughter- in -law Jacqueline Uwera. Kananura took sued Uwera at the family court in Kampala on June 5.
Jacqueline’s problems with her in-laws began almost immediately after the death of her husband in January. Soon after, Kananura moved in to ask Kampala High Court to be granted letters of Administration with intention to manage the multimillion shillings estate of his late son.
In his complaint, Kananura included the names of Nsenga’s children as beneficiaries. The three include Sheila Baguma, 26, who stays in United Kingdom, Jade Umwari Nsenga, 18, and Jermaine Kananura Nsenga, who is aged 11.
He further claims that on April 5, his daughter –in- law wrongfully and maliciously lodged a caveat forbidding the grant of letters of Administration to the estate of his late son. Kananura says his daughter- in- law accused him of giving false information to the Administrator General including failure to disclose that the deceased had another child, Sheila Kananura, and also that he did not disclose that there were other dependants.
Through his lawyers of Bitangaro and Co Advocates, Kananura wants court to remove the caveat lodged by Jacqueline Uwera and the letters of Administration be granted to him to enable him manage the estate of his late son.
But Jacqueline in her supplementary affidavit in support of lodging of the caveat claims that her late husband’s family led by his father wants to sideline her from her husband’s estate.
She states that there are attempts by the family to sideline and abandon her with no resources to ensure her sustainability and that of the children.
She further says the petition as presented by Kananura is made with deliberate exclusion of certain pertinent properties that belonged to her late husband. These include a wheat store in Nalukolongo, details of accounts in Crane Bank, Barclays Bank and motor vehicles including a BMW and MAZDA cars.
Court has subsequently summoned Jacqueline who is currently under police protection to file in her defense within 15 days before a hearing date can be fixed.
This case comes at a time when there is an application in which Nsenga’s family is seeking court orders to compel the police to produce Jacqueline before court to face murder charges as directed by the DPP.
The properties under dispute include houses on Plot 6 Muzindalo Close, Bugolobi, and a fleet of Beiben Trucks among others.
