Kampala - The Council for Multiparty Democracy (CMD) has instituted a five- man committee to probe the Kanungu cult murders.

CMD General Assembly chairman Haji Jjingo Kaaya said at a press conference on Thursday, "We shall inform the nation of the committee's findings since we are a government in waiting."

The CMD brings together the 26 groups that form the Multiparty National Referendum committee.

A number of mass graves have been unearthed since the March 17 mass murder of over 500 followers of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments led by Joseph Kibwetere.

The death toll so far is at 1,055.
