Silence is our right- Muslim suspects


The 14 suspects alleged to have masterminded the murders of two Muslim clerics (Sheikh Hassan Kirya and Mustafa Bahiga) have opted to remain silent in court and let it proceed  to write the final verdict basing on the evidence and exhibits already on court record.

The suspects including the Amir Umma (leader of the Tabliq sect) in the country Shiekh Yunus Kamoga have today appeared before the High court for their defence.

Through their lawyers; Fred  Muwema and Macdusman Kabega , the suspects informed the judges  that they have chosen to exercise  their Constitutional right to remain silent.

The case has now been adjourned to the 26th/May 2017.

The accused have been further remanded to Luzira prison.
