Mosey Radio’s case adjourned

By Sania Babirye
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.

Four police operatives arrested over torture of Byamukama

The Joint Police Task Force has finally arrested four police operatives accused of torturing Godfrey Byamukama, the Kamwenge Town Council LC 3 chairperson. They are Fred Tumuhirwe, Patrick Muramira, Moses Kasibante and Abdul Ssemuju alias Minaana.
According to a reliable Police source, the suspects were picked up on Saturday by a combined team of Flying Squad operatives, CID and Special Operations Unit. “We spent the last five days searching for them but now we have them in custody, they could not hide from us, said the source on condition of anonymity. The suspects are said to be in custody at Nalufenya police facility in Jinja District.
Police Spokesperson, Asan Kasingye couldn’t be reached for comment as his known phone numbers were off. URN has learnt that the suspects work under the Special Operations Unit (SOU), which was formed in 2014 at the peak of the operation against suspected members of the Allied Democratic Front (ADF) rebel group in Eastern Uganda.
SOU just like the Flying squad Unit operates under the direct supervision of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kale Kayihura. Kayihura is deputized by Herbert Muhangi who is the commandant Flying Squad while SOU currently has no commandant following the removal of Nixon Ayegasire, two months the ago.
Initially, police had claimed the arrest of the four officers through the media. However, some members of the Police Accounts Committee expressed anguish on Wednesday when they learnt that none of the suspects was in custody as claimed.
As a result, the Police leadership tasked Police Spokesperson, Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP), Asan Kasingye to call the media and apologise for giving false information.
According to police sources, Kasingye who also doubles as forces Chief Political Commissar refused the hold a media briefing that would depict him a liar and even threatened to resign.
