Buganda Road Court has committed former Kampala Central Police Station [CPS] Commander, Aaron Baguma, to the High Court and sent him back to Kigo prison on remand.

Last week, Baguma handed himself over to court, was charged with murder and aggravated robbery charges and remanded to Kigo government prisons.

On September 1, Baguma failed to appear in court for further mention of the case claiming he was sick.

The Chief Magistrate, Jamson Karemani, then issued a production warrant ordering the prison officials to produce him in court today, Tuesday September 6 for further mention.

Baguma’s charges are in relation to the alleged killing of businesswoman Betty Katusabe at Pine car bond in Kampala on October 21, 2015.

Shortly after Baguma was remanded, relatives of Katusabe petitioned the Director of Public Prosecution asking him not to prosecute Baguma whom they said had been “very helpful in the case” and ensuring that their deceased daughter gets justice.

According to them, prosecuting Baguma would stall the case and therefore their daughter might not get the justice that she deserves.

When he appeared today, magistrate Karemani committed Baguma to the High court to stand trial.

He will be tried at the next convenient criminal session.

He was also returned to prison on remand until then.

Baguma is charged alongside; Muhammed Ssebuwufu (owner of Pine car bond), Godfrey Kayiza, Philip Mirambe, Stephen Lwanga, Paul Tasingika, Yoweri Kitayimba, Shaban Otuddu and Damaseni Ssentongo.
