Kampala High Court Judge Jane Francis Abodo has set Friday, 24th August 2018 as the date at which she will deliver her ruling on whether to release on bail Godfrey Troy Wamala, a key suspect in the murder of local musician Moses Sekibogo popularly known as Radio Mowzey of Goodlyf.
Troy, through his lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuuzi, on Monday this week asked court to release him on bail pending trial.
Among the grounds which he cited out is that he has a fixed place of abode under the jurisdiction of this court, substantial sureties and he has a presumption of innocence.
Troy has presented three sureties who are his relatives whom Rwakafuzi informed court that have been thoroughly explained on their duties as sureties.
Prosecution alleges Troy to have murdered the talented ‘Neera’ hit maker after throwing him on the floor on the 22nd January 2018 that later led to his death on 1st February 2018.
In June this year Entebbe Magistrates Court committed Troy to high court for trial.
Days after Radio’s death, Troy was arrested having been picked up from his hideout in Kyengera, Wakiso District. Troy is alleged to have assaulted and pushed Radio to the ground while at Entebbe based hangout De Bar. The singer became unconscious and was rushed to Nsambya hospital before he was moved to Case Clinic, where he died from later.
