Major Kiggundu suspects committed to the War Crimes Court for trial

The four accused

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has ordered the trial of four suspects in the Maj. Muhammad Kiggundu and Sergeant Stephen Mukasa murder trial, to be taken before the International Crimes Division of the High Court.

The accused; Sheikh Yahaya Mwanjje,  Muhammad Buyondo, Ssekandi Musa and Ssendegeya Abdul Wahab had appeared before Buganda Road court Chief magistrate Jamson Karemani when  they were informed that investigations into their case are complete.

According to committal papers signed by state Attorney John Baptist Asiimwe, DPP says he has overwhelming evidence placing each of the accused at Masanafu trading center in Rubaga Division where the deceased officers were gunned down on November 26, 2016.

That evidence will show that before the said murder, there existed leadership wrangles  within the Tabliq Muslim community which created two factions that started to breed mistrust amongst themselves.

DPP argues that its these differences, that prompted one faction to pass  on threats and killing members from the opposite faction, which also generated a list and started murdering one by one.

DPP has therefore lined up exhibits that include recorded audio messages  containing threats that Sheikh Yahaya Mwanjje allegedly  passed on to Maj. Kiggundu,  witnesses who saw Sheikh Mwanjje along the Northern by-pass allegedly fleeing the scene of crime on the morning of the gruesome murder,  phone print-outs showing constant communication  plus in-box messages  of all the four accused persons made before and after the said  murder.
