The 23 people accused of killing former Police spokesperson, Andrew Felix Kaweesi, have been further remanded without knowing the status of the investigations in their case due to the current strike by state prosecutors.

At about 10:30am the accused were produced before Nakawa Grade one Magistrate Noah Sajjabi who informed them that state prosecutors had gone on strike. 

“We do not have a state attorney in court. I have been informed that they are on a sit down strike. Therefore, you are remanded until October 24,” Ssajjabi said.
