High Court judge Justice Wilson Masalu Mesene has declined to grant Sarah Nabikolo, healing http://deltadiner.com/wp-admin/includes/schema.php widow of the murdered Kampala businessman Eriya Bugembe Sebunya alias Kasiwukira and two of her co-accused bail on grounds that their case is going to be fixed for hearing this month.

Nabikolo together with her sister Sandrah Nakungu and Ashraf Jadeni a police office, sales who are accused of murdering Kasiwukira had reapplied for bail in the High Court for the second time following the delayed commencement of the trial.

The defendants were taken aback today, when their hope of hearing their case while coming from home was crushed by Justice Musene who informed them that court would not be able to hear their bail application because their case is going to be among the first 120 to be fixed in this year’s criminal session.

“As the head of the criminal division of the High court together with the Registrar we have decided to fix your case among the first scheduled to start on 29th February 2016,” he said.

Musene further advised the accused to get prepared with the lawyers for the hearing of their case which is going to be fixed any time from today.

The three accused persons who were remanded back to Luzira are represented by Mac Dusman Kabega, Rwadislaus Rwakafuuzi and Nsubuga Mubiru.

These, having been committed to High Court for trial in May 2015, decided to apply for bail citing a number of other factors including the widow’s illness.

President Yoweri Museveni finally showed at Karo Secondary school in Rushere Kiruhura district and cast his votes in the scotching sun.

Museveni’s motorcade entered the gate of the rural school at 2:55 pm and cast his ballot at exactly 3:00pm, approved http://criasaude.com.br/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-screen.php after waiting for a while in the queue

The President was flanked by his daughter Natasha and his usual Special Forces Security detail and the State House staff.

Museveni then proceeded to elect the rest of the parliamentary members and then got his finger marked as business for a while halted at the station.

Museveni thereafter, http://coffinpump.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-plugins-list-table.php addressed the restless press outside the polling station, informing them he needed to respect the ongoing exercise.

I cannot address you inside this polling station, because this isn’t ours. We have to respect these people because this is a public space,” he said.

“This is what we have been telling Besigye that he shouldn’t disrupt people going around with their business in Kampala. If you have a rally or you want to address your people, then take them to a football field, or to Kololo.”

“But you don’t take a political rally to the streets, it is illegal.  It is like taking a disco to the church.

Asked by reporters on the decision by the Uganda Communications Commission to disconnect social media services during the voting exercise, President Museveni said this was only a temporary measure by the authorities to stop people from misusing the platforms.

Museveni said while Ugandans had a right to enjoy their freedom of expression, many of them were misusing them.

That must have been a step taken to safeguard you from trouble,” he said. “If you want a right then you should be in a position to use in properly.”

The President called up his supporters to remain calm and promised them another victory and that of his ruling NRM party.
