Mumbere’s bail to be decided tomorrow

By Ruth Anderah

Jinja High Court Judge Eva Luswata is tomorrow set to deliver a ruling on the bail application filed by Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere.

This is after he presented 6 sureties including 5 Members of Parliament from his region led by the Leader of Opposition Winnie Kiiza and his former premier Constantine Bwambale.

The other MPs standing as surety for the king are Robert Centenary of Kasese Municipality, Tonny Muhindo of Bukonzo East, William Nzoghu of Busongora North and Atikins Katusabe from Bukonzo West.

The sureties have undertaken to bring back the king to court as and when he is required to do so.

However a team of state attorney’s from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions led by Alex Ojok has informed court that they have instructions to oppose the King’s bail on grounds that being an Influential person in the Kasese region, he has capacity to interfere with and frustrate the on-going police investigations within the area.
