In a high-stakes court appearance, Abdul Rashid Kyoto, also known as Njovu, faced another day of legal proceedings at Nakawa Chief Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
The Chief Magistrate, Erias Kakooza, announced an unexpected adjournment, citing ongoing investigations into the case.
"This is a special case because the investigations are still ongoing. The suspect is further remanded," Kakooza said.
Prosecution alleges that Kyoto, the prime suspect linked to the tragic incident in Queen Elizabeth National Park on October 17, 2023 killed British tourists Barlow David James and Geyer Emmarentia Cecilia, along with their guide Eric Alyai, lost their lives,
During court, he was visibly uneasy during the proceedings.

During the operation, two of Njovu's associates linked to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) were killed.
The court appearance, shrouded in heightened security, emphasized the gravity of the charges against Abdul Rashid.
The decision to adjourn underscored the complexity of the ongoing investigations, leaving many eager to see how the case will unfold in subsequent hearings.
