Court

Mumbere’s Bail Extended

Mumbere

Rwenzururu King, Charles Wesley Mumbere has Wednesday appeared in Jinja High Court in the office of the Deputy Court Registrar Jessy Byaruhanga.

Byaruhanga extended Mumbere’s bail up to November 30, 2017.

Mumbere alongside his royal guards were arrested in November 2016 after the police and military stormed his palace looking for people they suspected to have taken refuge, a raid that left over 100 people dead including police officers.

Following the bloody clashes, the state slapped several charges ranging from treason and terrorism, to murder and aggravated robbery.

To the court, Mumbere was accompanied by the Kingdom Attorney General Alfred Makasi; Rwenzururu Prime Minister, Johnson Thembo Kisumbire, the queen mother; and other kingdom loyalists who are under trial.
