Uganda v Akaka (Criminal Appeal No. 8 of 2015) [2019] UGHCCRD 12 (28 February 2019)

Criminal law
Case summary
Considering the evidence that had been previously tendered in, the appellant court observed that the evidence showed that the injury had been caused by falling onto a concrete ramp as he run away from the accused.   As such the prosecution had successfully proved their case against the respondent. The court therefore found that the trail magistrate had not properly directed himself to the evidence that had been adduced previously.   The court thus upheld the appeal. As regards sentence, it was stated that the court’s power to make a concurrent order for punishment as part of the sentencing process was discretionary.   Court thus, ordered compensation to the victim of the sum of 3,000,000/= which was to be paid within a period of three months.
