Masaka Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday committed legislators Allan Ssewanyana (Makindye West) and Muhammad Ssegirinya (Kawempe North) to the High Court.

The lawmakers are on trial for charges of murder, attempted murder, and aiding and abetting terrorism.

The presiding magistrate Christine Nantegge committed the MPs and their four other co-accused persons after the state prosecution concluded investigations.

According to the state, the group sat in Ndeeba near Kabaka’s Lake and Happy Boys’ restaurant where they planned the indiscriminate killings that rocked Masaka region between January and August.

The prime suspect Micheal Sserwadda allegedly confessed to having taken part in the killings and revealed his accomplices and their intentions of the indiscriminate killings and why they targeted Masaka.

He said they met at Happy Boys where the legislators facilitated them with money ranging from Shs50,000 to Shs100,000.

The aim of the murders was instilling fear among communities and discrediting the government.
