Apparently, the quartet faces two counts, including terrorism and the murder of Kagezi on March 30, 2015, at Kiwatule as she was driving home with her children.

Nakimbugwe has told uncoveredug news reporters that “we are glad that finally, the day has come; we are hopeful that we are going to get justice for the family and for the prosecution agency at large that one of us was taken out of action when she was doing her work.”.

Ms. Irene Nakibungwe, the assistant DPP spokesperson, says the other suspects at large will be apprehended. However, they were not allowed to take pleas because the court has no jurisdiction to hear capital offenses.

Additionally, the suspects were arraigned on Monday before Chief Magistrate Elias Kakooza, who remanded them until November 20, 2023, for mention of their case.

At the time of her murder by shooting, Kagezi was the lead prosecutor for the 2010 twin bombings in Kampala. The office of the DPP has since started a memorial lecture to remember her life and dedication to serving.

In conclusion, the suspects have been identified as Kisseka Daniel Kiwanuka, Kibuuka John, Nasur Abdallah Mugonole, and Musajagge John.
