Government has challenged the powers of Jinja High Court to grant bail to Rwenzururu King, drug Omusinga Charles Wesley Mumbere.

Mumbere who has been on remand at Luzira government prison since last year is charged with murder, more about aggravated murder, order treason, terrorism among other charges arising from the November 2016 Kasese clashes that left over 100 people dead.

A day after being charged, Mumbere filed an application in Jinja High court seeking to be released on bail, which government prosecutors challenge.

In their submission on Monday January 9th, prosecution say Mumbere is charged with among others terrorism and such a case can be heard by international crimes division only which is not the case with Jinja High court.

By publication time, the case hearing was still going on and Mumberes fate not yet decided.
