The trio is part of a group that was held by police in April last year over allegations that they participated in the assassination of former police spokesperson Andrew Felix Kaweesi, his bodyguard Kenneth Erau, and his driver Godfrey Mambewa.

Two of the 3 Kaweesi murder suspects who were granted bail by the Nakawa Magistrates court, are still stranded on remand at Luzira prison after failing to raise the 2 million shillings cash deposit the court had asked them to deposit.  Umar Maganda who had also been stranded with his colleagues managed to raise money and was released.

 

On Tuesday 9th January,, grade one magistrateSajjabi ordered Maganda, Ahmed Ssenfuka and Abdul Kaala to each deposit  cash  2 million shillings in order to regain their freedom and  to report to their respective area District Police Commanders every second Friday of the month,  who will in turn submit to Court a report regarding their compliance.

They were later released by the Nakawa court after being on remand for long.

 

Noah Sajjabi, the Nakawa Court Grade One Magistrate, had set the suspects free on mandatory bail because, since the first appearance in court, the prosecution had failed to commit them to the High Court for trial.

 

Upon their release, they were taken hostage by unknown Gunmen who grabbed them at the Nakawa Junction, only for them to be presented in court and charged with abetting terrorism and professing to belong to a terrorist group -ADF between 2001 – 2006
