The Chief Magistrates Court in Nakawa has further remanded Abdul Rashid Kyoto, also known as Njovu, the suspected ADF commander  linked to the gruesome murder of  two British tourists and their tour guide in Queen Elizabeth National Park last year.

When the case came up for mention on Tuesday,  Nakawa Chief Magistrate, Erias Kakooza,  pushed the matter to January 22 for  as inquiries continue.

Njovu faces two charges of terrorism, three charges of murder, three charges of aggravated robbery and one charge of Belonging to a terrorist organisation.

Susan Magara case continues

In the same vein, the trial of suspects accused of having killed Susan Magara, a cashier at Bwendero Diary Farm in 2018 continued.

The witness told court that he extracted exhibits like vaginal swabs, blood samples, fingers, and mouth swabs, all connecting to the late Susan Magara.

The defense team questioned the prosecution's lack of the original copy of the 14 March 2018 report, prompting the judges to warn against misuse of disclosure compliance.

The prosecution confessed to not having the original report, leading to the recording of the available reports as exhibits. The judge then scheduled the matter for further hearing on January 23.
