Suspects in court

High Court judge Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo is this morning expected to deliver judgement in the case of the 13 alleged plotters of the July 2010 twin Kampala bombings, nearly six years on.

The attacks left 76 people, mainly football fans who were watching the 2010 World Cup final, dead.

The suspects are already in court.

There is heavy deployment of security personnel in and around High Court ahead of the session.

Jane Okuo Kajuga, Public Relations Officer Director of Public Prosecution says the process of delivering judgement is the one that will deliver justice to victims.

“We have high expectations. This case has been quite a challenge. There was a lot of cross border movement of witnesses,” she says.

Kajuga says considering the gravity and size of the case, a good job was done. Results of that good job will come out today.”

Kajuga says this has been one of the biggest cases they have handled so far.

“There is no losing. Already, two suspects pleaded guilty and were sentenced to 5 and 25 years respectively.”

“We submitted that there was evidence against the suspects. If all the 13 are acquitted, we will appeal.”
