State backtracks

The state has in a turn of events backtracked in the case where MPs Allan Ssewanyana of Makindye West and Kawempe North’s Muhammad Ssegirinya are accused of masterminding  Masaka murders.

In the ongoing case in Masaka High Court, the two legislators asked court to be released on bail.

When the matter came up on Monday morning, the state withdrew its objection to the bail application.

Chief state attorney, Richard Birivumbuka told court that the DPP issued a certificate of no objection to the bail application and subsequently asked that the three affidavits filed against the bail application be withdrawn.
