The two opposition MPs who were arrested in September last year, are charged alongside Wilson Ssenyonga alias Tony Nyonga who pinned them for murdering Joseph Bwanika, who was a resident of Kisseka B village in Lwengo district.
Sssewanya complained that they have endured a long remand sentence of close to six months, which was enough time for the state to thoroughly study the case file, conduct and conclude the necessary investigations in the allegations against them.
On Wednesday, Richard Birivumbuka, the Masaka Resident State Attorney told Masaka Grade One Magistrate Philp Nzwebe that he and his family have received death threats from people he claims are connected to the two MPs.
The court couldn’t proceed due to the absence of the prosecutor. At some point, the magistrate was prompted to adjourn court for 20 minutes to allow the prosecutor more time to show up or send a representative in vain.
