Lawyers representing the embattled Rwenzururu king, Charles Wesley Mumbere and his co-accused  have complained over the delayed investigations against their clients.

Appearing before the Jinja chief magistrate John Baptist Kaggwa, Caleb Alaka argued bitterly with Grace Nabaggala, the Jinja Resident State attorney. Trouble began when Nabagala asked for more time to complete inquiries.

“Are we going to be coming to court for mentioning and go. Are they ready or they are playing delaying games?,” asked Alaka.

Alaka also protested the procedure used to ascertain the age of some suspects saying some were exaggerated. He asked court to allow them have an independent medical expert to examine their age.

The magistrate also concurred with Alaka saying this was a major problem in Uganda with officials mixing up age and HIV results.
