City businessman Matthew Kanyamunyu, girlfriend Cynthia Munwangari and his brother Joseph Kanyamunyu have been charged with murder by the Nakawa Magistrates court.

The three this afternoon appeared in court to be read of their charges in connection to the murder of child activist Kenneth Akena.

Kanyamunyu and the co-accused were taken to Nakawa court in a speeding Police Pick up.

Meanwhile, the suspects have been remanded to Luzira maximum prison until 6th December when they will appear in court again to file their defense over the matter.

Kanyamunyu and his Burundian girlfriend Cynthia are accused of shooting dead Akena at Game store on November 12; while Joseph Kanyamunyu is held on condition that the telecom printouts indicated that he was contacted immediately after the incident, which puts him in position to be having some knowledge on the incident.

Meanwhile, police is hunting for the killer gun.
