The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) has revealed to court that investigations in the kidnapping and murdering Susan Magara have been finalized.
Appearing before Buganda Road Grade one magistrate Robert Mukanza, State Prosecutor Patricia Cyngtho from the office of the DPP presented in court committal papers as proof that Police investigations in the matter are complete.
In response however, defense counsel Evans Ochieng objected to committal, arguing that it is not right to commit the suspects to High Court when one of them has never been charged before court.
Ochieng asked court to order prosecution first produce before Court Patrick Kasaija, or amend and remove him from the charge sheet before sending his nine clients to High court.
Patrick Kasaija also known as Pato, is reportedly detained in South Africa pending his extradition.
Having heard the submissions from both parties the magistrate adjourned the matter to 19th November 2018 to make a ruling on committal.
The suspects on committal papers include; Patrick Kasaija who is reportedly in South Africa, Yusuf Lubega, a bodaboda rider, Hussein Wasswa, a hawker, Muzamiru Ssali, a bodaboda rider, Hajara Nakandi a teacher and Abubaker Kyewolwa, a businessman.
Others are Mahad Kasalita an Imam at Usafi Mosque, Hassan Kato Miiro and Ismail Bukenya a businessman.
Prosecution led by Patricia Cyngtho contends that the accused with others still at large on February 7th 2018 kidnapped Magara with intent to procure a ransom or benefit from her liberation from the danger of being murdered.
It is further alleged that the same people with others still at large on the February 27th 2018 at Kigo in Wakiso district murdered Suzan Magara.
