Kiyingi summoned again over Muslims murders




Nakawa Grade One Magistrate, Timothy Lumunye, yesterday issued the 3rd criminal summons against Australia based Ugandan Cardiologist, Dr. Aggrey Kiyingi.

Kiyingi is wanted on charges relating to terrorism and the murder of Muslim clerics in central and eastern Uganda.

He is jointly charged with 5 others who are currently on remand at Luzira prison.

According to prosecution, Kiyingi offered training, recruitment and logistical support to former Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebels who were reportedly hired to execute the two sheikhs, Mustafa Bahiga and Abdul Muwaya.

The same group is thought to have executed Tito Okware (the LC3 Chairman, Buyinja Subcounty, Namayingo) and two policemen PC Babale Muzamir and SPC Tenywa Karim in Bugiri District.

Kiyingi was first summoned alongside Allied Democratic Force (ADF) rebel leader, Jamil Mukulu, by the Jinja Grade One Magistrate, Isaac Kintu Imoran, last month.

Yesterday, the State Prosecutor, Anne Ntimba, informed Nakawa court that Kiyingi had for the second time failed to show up because he had not been served with the first summons requested by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The magistrate pushed the summons to April 28, when Kiyingi’s co-accused will also appear for mention of their case.

According to the IGP, Gen Kale Kayihura, the hunt is still on-going to apprehend and bring to justice all the criminals that were responsible for these murders.

He recently announced the arrest of 18 suspects; Ali Kabambwe ALIAS Munakenya, Ali Salim Yahaya ALIAS Muchotala, Musa Dochu ALIAS Nabangi, Ibrahim Wanjala, Adam Din Bashir Wabula, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed Wasigu, Hon. Steven Dede ( MP Bukooli South-was later released) and Wanyama Daniel (Mayor Namayingo Town Council) who are now in custody.

Kayihura is on record for saying that they were making arrangements to have Kiyingi extradited to Uganda for trial in these murders.

The doctor has severally denied the allegations saying government is trying to curtail him from contesting against President Yoweri Museveni in 2016 general elections.
