Bobi Wine Treason Case Adjourned, MPs Paul Mwiru, Karuhanga to Get Criminal Summons

Gulu Magistrates Court has Monday adjourned the treason case involving Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi [Bobi Wine] and 33 others including local leaders and legislators.

Bobi Wine together with 29 other of his co-accused appeared before Gulu Grade One magistrate Yunus Ndiwalana for mention of their case which was adjourned to January 10th 2019.

Two of the accused including Jinja Municipality MP Paul Mwiru and Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga did not appear before court as asked and didn’t extend regrets or any explanation to the court.

Magistrate Ndiwalana promised to extend criminal summons to the two legislators.

Bobi Wine and his colleagues are accused of blocking President Museveni’s motorcade in Arua during the final Parliamentary campaigns to replace the late Abiriga.

The poll was won by independent candidate Kassiano Wadri who at the time was under incarceration together with Bobi Wine.

Prosecution alleges that Bobi Wine and other supporters of Kassiano Wadri had intentions to harm the president in blocking his motorcade.

Meanwhile, Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake also reported to Police CID headquarters in Kibuli where he was supposed to report last week but failed.

His lawyer Nicholas Opiyo of Chapter four Uganda would later inform Police that the legislator missed due to his poor health condition.
