The High court in Kampala has set the 8th of August to deliver its ruling on the second bail application filed by Godfrey Wamala who is charged with murdering local Musician Moses Sekibogo( commonly known as MoseyRadio) pending trial and determination of his case.
Today, state led by Mugisha Peter has asked justice Yasin Nuanzi to deny Wamala bail on grounds that he is charged with a capital offense that attracts a death sentence upon conviction.
State has further submitted that Wamala did in his affidavit give contradicting information in which he stated that he is a resident of Najjanankumbi and Kyengera in Wakiso district.
The state further claims that the suspect might be harmed once granted bail by the the many funs of the late musician who are still hurt and angry over his sudden death.
However, his lawyer Ladislausi Rwakafuzi has asked court to grant his client bail on grounds that they did cross check with the office of the high court registry and discovered that their case has not been cause listed for hearing soon.
Wamala has presented three sureties including his sisters Rose Nalwada, Jackie Muwanga and his brother Fred Wamala.
This is the second time that Wamala is asking for bail.
On the 24th of August 2018, Kampala high court judge Jane Francis Abodo dismissed Wamala’s first bail application on grounds that Wamala who also calls himself Troy did not prove any exceptional circumstances including old age and poor health despite applying for bail being his constitutional right.

The family of the late Moses Sekibogo commonly known as Mosey Radio has protested at the Entebbe Magistrate court showing their dissatisfaction in the manner the case is being handled.
These led by his mother Jane Kasubo had appeared today before chief magistrate Mary Kaitesi hoping that state would have concluded investigations to have the case committed for trial in the high court.
However prosecution informed court that investigations are still ongoing asking for more time which forced the magistrate to adjourn the case to the 18th of June 2018.
This did not go well with the frustrated relatives who asked court to help in seeing that Mosey Radio gets justice for his death.They also claimed that it’s not fair that one person whom they do not believe is the actual murderer was been arrested so far.
They say that the actual killers have not been arrested and its not fair to only have one person whom police claims was involved in Mosey Radio’s death. They have now asked court to arrest more people and the actual people who were involved in his death if justice is to be served for their lost relative. Godfrey Wamala alias Troy has also further been remanded to Kigo government prison.
On the 7th of February this year, Troy was remanded to Kigo government prison after being charged with murder by chief magistrate Mary Kaitesi who bared him from entering any plea since he is facing a capital offense that is only tried and bailed by the high court.
Troy is a businessman and a resident of Kyengera LC1, Nsangi Town council in Wakiso district, the same place where security operatives from Katwe police station caught him while hiding after he allegedly beat Mosey Radio on the 22nd of January 2018, by allegedly hiting the late on the head during a brawl at “De bar ” in Entebbe.
Mosey Radio is said to have then sustained head injuries and died a week later at Case Clinic in Kampala after going into a coma.
