Isma Basalirwa, a former employee of Fresh Perch Factory in Luzira has appeared before Nakawa magistrate’s court for allegedly stabbing his Asian boss to death. He appeared this morning before Agnes Napio, Nakawa grade II magistrate where he was charged with the murder of Sayyed Abasi Ali, a manager at Fresh Perch Factory.

 
Prosecution heard that on February 9t, 2012 while at Fresh Perch Factory in Luzira, Basalirwa stabbed Ali to death.  It is alleged that on the fateful day Ali served Basalirwa food together with other workers.  When they finished eating Basalirwa allegedly left together with the other workers but returned and stabbed Ali to death.

 
He allegedly fled to Luuka district where he was picked up by police and brought back to Kampala for prosecution. Napio didn’t allow Basalirwa to enter any plea since the grade II magistrate court lacks jurisdiction over the case. She remanded him to Luzira prison until March 07, when his case will come up for mention in court.
