There has been chaos at Nakawa court after the magistrate adjourned a case against 17 suspects linked to the killing of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Andrew Felix Kaweesi.
On their third appearance before Grade One Magistrate Noah Sajjabi, relatives and friends threatened to abandon children at the court premises, saying that they are fed up of the continuous adjournment of the case. The case had earlier been adjourned to June 15, 2017.
The suspects’ relatives, who were stopped from greeting those incarcerated, demanded for a speedy trial, telling the magistrate that their children lack food and are not going to school.
This is not the first time for the relatives to express emotion; during the second hearing, they cried after seeing the prisoners inflicted with wounds on their bodies.
AIGP Kaweesi was gunned down on March 17 together with his body guard Keneth Erau and his driver Godfrey Mambewa.
Since then, over 40 suspects have been arrested and more than 30 have been tried and prosecuted.
