Ali Omar Almuzahim, Khan Babu Abdul ,Noor Abubaker Abid Rashied Butt aka Ikbar and Fatuma Babu aka Tuma were charged before Makindye Court Chief Magistrate Esta Nambayo on Tuesday for the death of Butaleja Woman MP, Cerinah Nebanda.
They have been charged with manslaughter in addition to Nebanda’s boyfriend, Adam Kalungi who first pleaded guilty but later denied the charge. The co-accused also denied the charges of manslaughter; they were remanded to Luzira Prison until Febraury 5, when they will re-appear in court for their bail.
Kalungi has not applied for bail saying his life out of prison might be in danger. Charges against Kalungi of supplying and dispensing restricted drugs were dismissed by Judge Nambayo. One of his lawyers, MacDosman Kabega said, “Without what particular drug that was dispensed and to who it was dispense makes the charge incurably defective and no amount of amendment can cure it.
The lover of 24-year-old Nebanda was arrested three weeks ago after being tracked down by Kenyan police at Kenyan port city of Mombasa.
