Lukwago, Besigye case for interpretation

 Besigye, Lukwago in court

Opposition leaders Dr. Kiiza Besigye and Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago can now breathe with a sigh of relief.

This is after Buganda Road Court Grade One Magistrate Julius Borore pushed the charges confirmed against the duo yesterday to the Constitutional Court for interpretation.

Yesterday the same magistrate upheld charges of unlawful society against Besigye and Lukwago saying the defense team had failed to prove that the charges were a nullity.

However, Borore today pushed the case to the constitutional court after defense lawyers led by Krizestom Katumba raised constitutional questions.

They argued that police had abused the constitution and detained their clients for over 48 hours in different cells, an act that is illegal.
