Kanyamunyu appeals against High Court’s decision to deny him bail

Mathew Kanyamunyu, prime suspect in the murder of Akena, has appealed against High Court’s decision to deny him bail.

Through Alaka and Company Advocates, Kanyamunyu says he is dissatisfied with part of the High Court ruling and wants Court of Appeal to review it.

On March 28, 2017, Justice Yasin Nyanzi denied Kanyamunyu bail saying there was no guarantee that he would not interfere with witnesses.

The judge also ruled that it was the court’s duty to balance Kanyamunyu’s constitutional right to get bail on the presumption of innocence, and to protect the society from lawlessness.
