Court sets free 5 Kampala terror suspects


Suleiman Mbuthia

Kampala High Court has acquitted five suspects who appeared for judgement over Thursday in the 2010 twin bombings that rocked the Ugandan capital.

Presiding judge Justice Owiny Dollo found Kenyan national Suleiman Mbuthia not guilty and acquitted him of terrorism charge.

The judge said there is no evidence that he [Suleiman Mbuthia] participated in the planning and execution of the attacks.

Another Kenyan national Omar Awadh Omar was also found not guilty since evidence against him was not strong enough.
