The High Court in Mukono has convicted Matthew Kirabo, in absentia, for the murder of his girlfriend Desire Mirembe Jemima, a former Makerere University Medical student.
According to Justice Henry Kaweesa Isabirye, a careful study of all the evidence from all the parties shows that the case was a love story gone wrong.
“I do find that the circumstantial evidence before me is well corroborated. It shows that for a fact this was a sad story of love gone sour. These two love birds developed relationship challenges and the girl sought counselling and in the process, they agreed to meet and resolve their differences, and according to the evidence, this never came to be. The last time the two met was on that fateful night. Events that followed that meeting let to the death of Desire Mirembe.
