Entebbe Grade One Magistrate’s court has for the third time remanded Godfrey Wamala aka Troy, the prime suspect in the murder of slain music icon Moses Nakintijje aka Mowzey Radio.
Appearing before GI magistrate Mary Kaitesi, suspected killer Troy was remanded to Kigo prison till April 9, 2018 after prosecution led by Resident State Attorney Julius Muhiirwe asked for more time to gather substantial evidence.
On February 26, Ms Mary Kaitesi remanded Troy to Kigo Prison after prosecution submitted that investigations into the case were still going on.
Troy was again not allowed to take plea because the charges against him are grave in nature and can only be heard by the High Court.
Troy was arrested at Kyengera in Wakiso District days after Mowzey’s death after a tip off by a team led by Katwe Division Police commander Frantile Lwamusaayi.
Upon arrest, Troy was taken to Katwe Police Station where he recorded a statement before he was transferred to Entebbe Police Station where the offence was committed.
At the time of his arrest, Wamala was staying with a friend.
Officers who participated in his arrest said Troy confirmed to them that he was with Mowzey, David Washington Ebangit, Pamela Musiimire, one Hassan and others on the fateful day.
In a full court attended by Mowzey Radio’s mother among other relatives, defence lawyer Ladislaus Rwakafuuzi didn’t not show up as magistrate Kaitesi remanded his client for third time.
Prosecution averred that between January 27 and February 1, Troy hit Mowzey Radio during a bar brawl in which the latter sustained injuries on brain leading to his death at Case Hospital.
