Wealthy businesswoman Molly Katanga appeared before Nakawa Magistrate Court this Wednesday morning to face charges of murdering her husband, Henry Katanga. Molly arrived in a wheelchair, responding to a warrant of arrest issued by the court after failing to honor multiple summons.

The warrant, dated January 22, 2024, directs Molly’s arrest for the offense of murder, as specified in Section 11 and 189 of the Penal Code Act Cap 120. Henry Katanga, a prominent moneylender, was found dead on November 2, 2023, in their matrimonial home in Mbuya, Kampala.

Court has remanded Molly’s daughters, Martha Nkwanzi Katanga, Patricia Kakwanza alias Tricia, house helper George Amanyire, and Charles Otai to Luzira prison on charges related to the businessman’s death. Molly, dressed in a Kitenge, appeared weak, with her head wrapped in a bandage due to injuries sustained in a reported fight with her late husband.

Kampala Associated Advocates revealed Molly’s challenges with healing, citing persistent scabs and blackening in certain scalp regions, causing dizziness affecting her mobility and comfort.

The prosecution claims Molly’s DNA was found on the killer weapon’s trigger, with matching cartridges to the pistol recovered at the crime scene. The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) intends to use postmortem reports, forensic analyses, phone printouts, and scene-of-crime reports as evidence.

However, Molly’s defense argues the absence of fingerprints on the pistol’s trigger may undermine the prosecution’s case, asserting she was a victim of domestic violence.
