Shakur Mugabe Kamada is jointly accused with Ali Dumba Salongo, a witch doctor from Masajja, John Bosco Olo, Frank Sendi, a boda-boda rider from Kawempe, Brain Kaaya and Herbert Lukwago, a property broker from Makindye Division.

Prosecution alleges that on May 11th, 2018 while at the New Taxi Park on Namirembe Road within Kampala city, the suspects kidnapped Rose Nakiseka with intentions of asking for a ransom of Shillings 1,150,000 million from her father, Fred Kassaga.

The suspects later killed Nakiseka. The suspects are also charged with the kidnapping and killing Halima Rehama Nabwanika on May 24th, 2018 at Masajja in Makindye Sabagabo Division. The suspects appeared this morning before the Law Development Centre Court in Kampala for the mention of their case.

However, the prime suspect Kamada pleaded with court to transfer him from Luzira Upper Prison to Murchison Bay Wing, says he fear that his co accused, Dumba may harm him prison. Kamada explained that although Dumba hasn't attacked him yet, he afraid of him since he is a witchdoctor who is capable of harming him.

Dumba on the other hand complained that he was tortured by security operative before he was remanded and tried to undress in court to show the presiding magistrate, Roseline Nsenge wounds on his back but she stopped him.

She directed the prison authorities to relocate Kamada from Luzira Upper prison to Murchison Bay, saying his complaint is genuine. She remanded the suspects until July 23rd, 2018 after the State Prosecutor Roseline Kipora told court inquiries into the matter were still on going.
