THE JUDGE GOT IT SPOT ON NSENGA TRIAL:
The main questions in this case are whether this Uwera Nsenga had a motive festered by an on going history of marital conflict, Did she use the vehicle as a means to cause grievous body harm with intent to murder. Did the opportunity to carry out her sordid act present itself on that awful night?
We learn that this was a soured relationship, with verbal threats from Mrs Nsenga to inflict fatal bodily harm to Mr Nsenga. The acceleration of the vehicle in question, indicates that it was an intentional and deliberate action. The action of repeated driving over an unmoving body just seals it for the prosecution.
For those asking how she could have known whether the husband would be the one opening the gate. The answer is simple. The fact that Mr Nsenga habitually opened the gate for the wife, creates the opportunity for the latter to carry-out her plan. We have to flinch with knowledge that this could have been a wrong target, a totally innocent party.
But we have to remember that people intent on crime execution, don’t think rationally and normally. The victim of this criminal act could have been an employee or any other member of the family, and not necessarily the husband. This was a 50/50 gamble that netted the target. Any other outcome of her actions would have been mere collateral damage.
The judge reached his conclusion using scientific knowledge.
