Lawyers from Wameli and Company Advocates have petitioned the High Court in Kampala to order for the release of eight suspects, currently in prison for participating in a shooting targeted at Works Minister Gen Edward Katumba Wamala.
The said persons were arrested between June 24, and July 2, 2021, for orchestrating and participating in the shooting that happened on June 1, 2021, along Kisota road, a suburb of Kampala, where Gen Katumba’s daughter and driver were killed on spot.
The suspects are Sheikh Yusuf Siraji Nyanzi, Hussein Sserubula, Muhammad Kagugube, Kamada Walusimbi, Siriman Ayuub Kisambira, Abdulaziz Ramathan Dunku, Habib Ramanthan Marjan and Huzaifa Wampa.
The matter is yet to be fixed for hearing.
