Nakawa Chief Magistrate's Court has further remanded thirteen people accused of murdering Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Felix Kaweesi, his body guard Kenneth Erau and driver Geoffrey Mambewo.
This was after state attorney, Rachael Nabwiire, informed court that inquiries were still underway.
"Your worship, inquiries in the matter are still underway. We pray that the case be further mentioned," Nabwiire said.
The trial grade one Magistrate, Noah Ssajjabi, adjourned the case to May 18 for further mention.
