Katushabe Murder: Sebuufu Also Released On Bail

The main suspect in the murder of businesswoman Donah Katushabe, medical Muhammad Sebuffu has also been granted bail by the High Court.

Sebuufu was released on his second attempt by the High Court Judge Justice Musalu Musene, his first bail application having been denied by the same judge earlier.

Sebuufu, the owner of Pine Car Bond is said to have beaten Katushabe to death, following her failure to clear a Shs 9million debt for a car she had purchased from the bond.

He was today released on a Shs 10million cash bail while his sureties Shs 100 non-cash each.

Subuufu was ordered to deposit his passport with the court and must report regularly to the court starting October 7th.

Earlier in the morning, his lawyers had tasked the court to release their client on grounds that his co-accused and former Kampala DPC Aaron Baguma had been granted bail the previous day.

Judge Museni in his ruling stated that having granted bail to Baguma who had spent a few weeks in prison there was no ground for keeping Sebuufu behind bars. He added that the applicant’s sureties were all found to be substantive. 

Sebuufu’s sureties included his friend Joseph Tamale Mirundi, his uncle Nuhu Muzaata and another relative Abdu Karim .
