The High Court Judge heading the criminal division, Justice Wilson Kwesiga has set 30th/March to hear the bail application filed by 4 tabliq Moslems, on remand for the allegedly murdering Maj. Muhammad Kiggundu and his body guard Sgt. Steven Mukasa.
The suspects include the acting Amir Sheikh of Nakasero Mosque Sheikh Yahaya Ramathan Mwanje, 2 boda-boda riders, Muhammad Buyondo and Abdul-Wahab Ssendeya and a businessman from Masanafu trading centre Musa Ssekandi.
They want the High Court to temporarily release them from Luzira prison on grounds that bail is their Constitutional right and that they will not interfere with Police investigations.
The accused also claim they are innocent untill proved guilty, and have permanent places of residence within the court's jurisdiction.
Meanwhile Sheikh Mwanje and co-accused have today appeared before Buganda Road court chief magistrate Jamson Karemani for further mention of this case.
Prosecution led by Emilly Ninsiima asked court for more time to conclude investigations.
Magistrate Karemani adjourned the matter to 7th/April/2017.
