Kampala: Lawyers to the suspects arrested for the killing of the former Buyende District Commander Muhammad Kirumira have asked the court to either dismiss the case or grant the suspects bail.

This was after defense lawyer Zafaniah Zzimbe asked the high court to make a pronouncement on the case, considering it has silent for long yet his clients are hustling in jail.

His comments come after Justice Alex Ajiji Mackay on Tuesday, postponed the hearing of the case to another date after he was told by the prosecution that only one out of the ten prosecution witnesses had turned up.

Ajiji instead further remanded the two suspects Abubakar Kalungi and Hamza Mwebe until when the High Court in Kampala sets a date for the case to be heard.

Kirumira was horribly gunned down on September 8th, 2018 together with his female friend, Resty Nalinya by unknown assailants on motorcycles.

The State Prosecutor Joyce Tushabe told the court that the prosecution was doing all it could to ensure that other witnesses turn up in court when the date for the hearing is fixed.

The prosecution insists they have overwhelming evidence implicating the two suspects and others still at large were involved in the murder that was plotted by former Alliance Democratic Force-ADF rebels.
