Kamoga Judgement Expected Today

Three High Court International Crimes Division (ICD) judges will Monday deliver their judgement in the case where former Tabliq leader Sheikh Yunus Kamoga and 13 others are charged with murder, terrorism and attempted murder.

These are accused of murdering Sheikh Mustapha Bahiga, Sheikh Abdu Kadhir Muwaya, Sheikh Hassan Kirya and attempting to murder Sheikh Harunah Jemba.

The long awaited judgment will be delivered by ICD court Justices Jane Kiggundu, Percy Tuhaise and their lead judge Ezikiel Muhanguzi.

This trial kicked off in late 2016 amidst tight security from all security organs; which have since ensured among others that the accused persons are brought at court under maximum security and only scrutinized people attend court sessions.

Their trial is among the most attended to cases whereby the judiciary was forced to reserve a room with large LCD screens to enable the suspects’ relatives and friends to follow timely court proceedings which was applauded by many.

During their defence, all the accused persons opted to keep quiet from the three options provided for them under the law

The three court Assessors in the matter Robert Lubega Sseguya, Judith Muhairwe and Muhammad Ddumba in their unbinding opinion advised the three justices to acquit all the 14 accused persons on grounds that the prosecution, evidence which was brought against was marred by inconsistencies.
