Twenty-two suspected killers of the former Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Andrew Felix Kaweesi, have been further remand in prison until July 26, 2017.

This follows a countrywide sit-down strike of state lawyers.

The suspects were returned to prison without knowing at which stage the inquiries into their charges had reached since there were no prosecutors in court.

“Since there is no state representative in court, you are remanded until July 26, 2017,” Grade One Magistrate Noah Ssajjabi.

The majority suspects were charged on April, 21, 2017 with three counts of murder, terrorism, and aggravated robbery.

Kaweesi was murdered together with his body guard Kenneth Erau and driver Geoffrey Mambewo on the morning of March, 17, 2017, a few meters away from his home in Kulambiro, Nakawa Division.

The suspects are Abdul-Rashid Mbaziira, Aramazan Noordin Higenyi, Yusuf Mugerwa, Bruhan Balyejusa, Umar Maganda, Ahmada Shaban Ssenfuka, Hassan Tumusiime, Ibrahim Kissa and Osman Muhammed Omar.

Others are Hamidu Magambo, Abdu-Majid Ojerere, Joshua Kyambadde Magezi and Sheikh Musa Abubaker Ntende, Jibril Kalyango alias Abu Aisha and Yusuf Siraje Nyanzi alias Jimmy Ssentamu.

Their relatives were this time denied access into the courtroom.
