Jinja Grade One Magistrate, Isaac Kintu Imoran, has finally issued a warrant of arrest for the Uganda Australia based cardiologist, Dr Aggrey Kiyingi.
The same warrant was also issued against Allied Democratic Force (ADF) rebel leader, Jamil Mukulu.
Kintu said after being arrested, the duo will be sent on remand alongside their about five accomplices who are currently remanded to Luzira prisons on charges related to terrorism and the murder of Muslim clerics in central and eastern Uganda.
They will stay in Luzira until May 7, when they will reappear for the mention of their case.
Last month, Kintu summoned Mukulu and Kiyingi twice for trial but they never showed up.
About a week ago, Nakawa Grade One Magistrate, Timothy Lumunye, issued the 3rd criminal summons against the pair but still they never showed up.
Prosecution claims that the accused belong to a rebel outfit known as Federal Alliance, which is led by Kiyingi.
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.
The Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura, said more than 18 suspects have since been arrested; 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) and 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.
Kiyingi refutes alleged summons
The doctor has severally denied the allegations saying government is trying to curtail him from contesting against President Yoweri Museveni in 2016 general elections.
He told The Observer that President Museveni was playing his dirty political tricks again.
He said he has not even received any summons as government alleges.
He accused the president of fabricating the said charges out of fear of the challenge he poses to Museveni’s political life.
