By Hillary Kiirya TWO women were yesterday charged with murder following the recent terrorist attacks in Jinja town. The women were among 28 people arrested in a three-day operation conducted in July by the anti-terrorism task force led by the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence. Salama Namakula, 20, and Fatuma Nabbanja, 25, both housewives, appeared before Buganda Road Court grade one magistrate Martin Mungao.

They appeared in court on a production warrant to have the charges read out to them. They are now facing two charges, one of murder and another of terrorism. Prosecutor Paul Ogwal said Namakula and Nabbanja and others still at large on July 7, at Lillian Pub Plot 22A Main street in Jinja murdered Moses Ngobi by planting a bomb in the pub. Ends
