Hearing of Radio’s Murder Case Kicks off Today

Hearing of the case in which Godfrey Wamala  Troy is accused of murdering prominent artiste Moses Ssekibogo aka Moze Radio is resuming  this morning at High Court sitting at Entebbe before justice Jane Abodo

Troy on Monday this week was officially charged with murder and pleaded not guilty to the offense

Before plea taking, he made two attempts at  bail but was unsuccessful.

In his first attempt made last year before Justice Abodo, court declined to release him on grounds that he is charged with a grave offence and that being that he had been committed to High court for trial, it indicated progress in the matter.

The judge ordered the Registrar to fix the case for hearing as soon as possible

A year later, Troy made a second attempt before Justice Yasin Nyanzi who advised him to go back to Justice Abodo and inform her that his case has not been fixed for hearing despite her earlier orders

On the 6th of June 2018, Entebbe chief magistrate Susan Okeni committed Troy for trial after prosecution led by Julius Muhirwa informed court that the Director of Public Prosecutions had directed him to have the murder suspect committed to the high court for trial upon completion of investigations into his case.

The DPP says he intends to adduce evidence to prove that Troy was indeed at the scene of the crime including witnesses that saw the late Mowzey at De Bar with the suspect drinking before a fight broke out between the two, among other evidence.
