The trial of One of Vice President Gilbert Bukenya's escorts, who is accused of shooting dead three civilians in Mbale, has began at a military court martial in Mbale Municipal chambers.
Private Zefa Muhumuza, attached to the vice presidents security unit, appeared before the court martial presided over by the third division court martial chairman, Col. Moses Ndiba Ssentongo. He is facing three counts of murder.
Court heard that on April 6th, Muhumuza stormed Nalufutu lodge in Mbale, and shot and killed Robinah Namusoga, a sex worker for allegedly stealing his money.
Court also heard that Muhumuza also shot and killed Collins Nabende, the man who was found in the company of the sex worker and Moses Kiwani, a security guard who attempted to intervene in the brawl.
Muhumuza who appeared composed as the charges were read to him denied all the three counts.
Testifying in the case, two boda-boda cyclists, Siraje Kirya and Ibrahim Asio pinned that suspect for the three murders.
But the state prosecutor's representative, Lt. Arthur Asingirwe, asked the prosecution to adduce enough evidence, before the accused can be convicted.

The case has been adjourned to Thursday to allow prosecutions bring in more witnesses.
