According to sources, Sebuwufu, who is charged alongside former Central Police Station (CPS) Commander Aaron Baguma, has listed his sureties as Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, a controversial Muslim cleric; Joseph Tamale Mirundi, the fiery former presidential secretary, and one Abdul Karim Kironde.

An earlier attempt by Sebuwufu to get bail failed after his sureties were rejected by court.

However yesterday, High Court Judge Wilson Masalu Musene granted bail to Superintendent of Police (SP) Baguma. The police officer recently turned himself in after court issued a warrant of arrest against him for ignoring summonses.

Baguma and Sebuwufu are being charged alongside six other suspects for the cold-blooded torture and murder of Ms Katushabe in October last year.
