COURT has ordered a local movie artiste to produce a script of an intended production ‘murder in city’ based on the story of Aggrey Kiyingi.

Buganda Road Court magistrate Justice Atukwasa ordered Ashraf Ssemwogerere to produce the script on November 17 to help her decide on whether to stop it or not.
This followed a protest by the state and Kiyingi’s lawyers, saying the production of the movie would jeopardise investigations in the case.

Kiyingi (right) is accused of murdering his wife, Robinah Kiyingi.
Ssemwogerere who turned up without a lawyer, failed to explain his intended movie. “I was actually devastated when I heard that I had been summoned to court over a movie I am writing,” he said. He said the movie did not have anything to do with the case.

Ssemwogerere said he would consult his lawyer on whether to bring the script to court or not.
Kiyingi’s case had turned up yesterday for mention but prosecution informed court that inquiries in the matter still continue.
