Grade one magistrates’ court in Bushenyi presided over by his worship Paul Mujuni has today afternoon Aug. 08, 2018 officially withdrawn charges against the four accused anti-Tycoon Basajabalaba moslems.
The withdrawal of the cases followed a directive by the director of public prosecutions [DPP] Mike Chibita to Bushenyi chief magistrate that he no longer had interest in the cases.
His worship Paul Mujuni also released Mudafara Byagota who had spent three months in Nyamushekyera government prison.
Others who were charged alongside Byagota include; Umar Muhanguzi Deputy RDC Bundibugyo, Mr. Yasin Kyoota NRM chairman Ishaka division and Isma Bacondoza a businessman and nephew to Tycoon Basajabalaba.
The four were accused of robbing millions of shillings from their rival’s shop, Muhammad Lukwago a close confidant to the tycoon.
The Ishaka moslem fights emanated from a desire by Basajabalaba to take land where their main mosque in Ishaka is located. The fights have so far taken six months.
The mosque is still guarded by UPDF and Moslems cannot be allowed to hold prayers in it
