Family demands fresh investigations into Karamagi murder at Jose Chameleon home
For the third time in a space of 11 years, the family of Robert Karamagi has petitioned the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) seeking to reopen his murder case.
27 year old Karamagi was allegedly burnt on December 26, 2012 at the home of Singer Jose Chameleon in Seguku, off Entebbe Road.
Through his lawyers of Nalukoola Advocates and solicitors, Karamagi's father Maj. Benedicto Kyamanywa petitioned the DPP demanding the reopening of his son's case.
Kyamanywa's lawyers further intimate that the DPP's office has kept promising to have their matter investigated to the dot in vain.
“He [DPP] pledged to allow the father of the deceased an opportunity to give police further evidence for consideration and have the file sanctioned,” the letter reads in part.
“The purpose of this letter, therefore, is to invite your good office to consider reopening the file, invite, among others, our client to give information regarding investigations and reconstruction of the scene of crime, which will culminate into justice for our client’s late son,” the letter further reads.
Prior to this time, the family and their lawyers had petitioned the same office on November 30, 2016 and January 10, 2017.
Circumstances surrounding Karamagi’s death remains mysterious to date. Chameleone’s wife, Ms Daniella Mayanja, reportedly said the deceased, who had intruded at their residence, burnt himself as he tried to burn her.
But his father claims his son confided in him while at Mulago hospital moments before he died how his hands were tied with ropes before being burnt with aviation fuel.
