State ordered to produce Sheikh Kirevu's widows, sister

RIP: Sheikh Kirevu

RIP: Sheikh Kirevu

The state has up to December 6 to produce the widows of slain Sheikh Abas Muhammad Kirevu before High court judge, Musa Ssekaana.

"This is to command you to attend Court in persons or by your representative in the High court of Uganda before a judge…immediately after the receipt of this out writ. the bodies of Amina Nabadda. Sofia Nakachwa and Mariam Najjuko being taken in your custody as is said together with the day and cause of heir being taken and detained by whatsoever name…” reads the order.

Justice Ssekaana issued the order following an application by Amina Nabadda and Sofia Nakachwa, both widows of the late Sheikh Kirevu and their sister-in-law, Mariam Najjuuko through their lawyers of Nalukoola, Kakeeto Advocates and Nyanzi, Kiboneka and Mbabazi Advocates.   

The trio was arrested by security forces during a raid on their residence in Busabala-Makindye Ssabagabo Division, Wakiso district on November 18, 2021. The operatives arrested Sheikh Kirevu and shot him dead for his alleged links to the rebel Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

Police claimed that the deceased Sheikh who was suspected of recruiting people for ADF was killed after he violently tried to resist arrest, a narrative the family has since dismissed as false.

Security has since held Kirevu’s widows and sister incommunicado, which prompted them to sue the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI), the director of Criminal Investigations Department (CID), the commandant of Special Investigations Unit (SIU) and the Attorney General.

Court heard that the three persons were abducted and kidnapped by government security agents and bundled into a vehicle after killing the family head. The lawyers stated that the whereabouts of the three persons remain unknown and there is fear that after the killing of Sheikh Kereru, the applicants could have also been killed.

“That the applicants may be under intense torture and inhuman treatment by the security operatives as is being done to the Muslims arrested as terrorists/ADF,” reads the court documents.  

In a sworn affidavit supporting the application, Ibrahim Kirevu, a family member said that he had visited several police stations, which are gazetted detention facilities to try and find the trio in vain.

The lawyers argued that it was in the interest of justice that the court reviews the legality of the arrest, imprisonment and detention.

Museveni hates moslems since his attempted invasion in the 1970's.

How many innocdent moslems were killed under his orders in the then Mbarara District?

Days are coming when he and his acolytes will answer for all the killings caused to innocent Ugandan families.
How was Prof. Yusuf Lule killed in London and by who?

This man could not have been in power if Lule had not founded the National Resistance Movement and, if he remained alive!

I am sure he started perfectioning the art of killing when he was still under 10 years of age if not, he would have been a professional coward. Do not fprget that he is a coward and that is why he asks his acolytes to kill his opponents.

Kasede, I am sure you are one of those killing Ugandans, if not you would not ask me to shut up.

Iam not a refugee in Uganda but a Ugandan in his own rights to say what is genuine.

By saying I must shut up, you simply want to intimidate or kill me as you guys are doing to innocent Ugandans whose only fault is to demand being respected in their own mother country, Uganda.

When groundnuts harvesting period is on, rats abound, but when that is over, they tend to take safety.

You are not far from those kind of rats!!!
What evil had Sheik Kirevu done to be brutally assassinated, and his wives gone missing in the hands of security agents? Can you please, give us the definition of the security?

You're quite right Zaitun, the fact that our despot man refers to his Muslim victims as pigs( kuno si Ku joga.

We all know how this animal is considered by Muslims)means a lot.

Any attempt to divide Ugandans on religious grounds will be a total failure as tribalism failed.

In the beginning of their rule and during their period of banditry, they had succeeded in dividing Ugandans between the north and south.

Their mono tribal domination, atrocities and marginalization of others has created unity among Ugandans. The way Bony or KB is welcomed in the north is a tangible result that Ugandans are united.

ZAITUN, please tell me which country hates moslems more than the USA!

Yet I have not seen a partnership like the US and the custodians of the holy sites of Islam, Saudi Arabia. The Saudis are smart they saw strategic patternship,embraced it and are developing phenomenally!

Your shenzi reduction of Ugandan problems to being about hating moslems is so backward, it is a disservice to Ugandan moslems, let the enlightened moslems enjoy or hurt as other Ugandans, which is what is happening.

[quote name="Joe"]ZAITUN, please tell me which country hates moslems more than the USA! .......

Your shenzi reduction of Ugandan problems to being about hating moslems is so backward,

No one has reduced Ugandans to shenzi but you and your godfather.

Can you please define the word backward and tell me what exactly you intend to say. Otherwise, the relationship that exists between US and SA is squarely based on economy of oil and gas, nothing more.

Why should you be in pannick when we tell the truth about your grandfather, that he hates Moslems? That is not a hidden fact to Ugandans. How many moslems has he killed right from the time when he participated in the invasion of Uganda from Tanzania, especially those in Mbarara till today?

Who were those he referred to as the Anyanya from West Nile if not moslems?

If Uganda has inherent problems today, it is just because of your simplistic partenal philosophy.
