Jailed Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere will reappear at Jinja Magistrates Court for  mention of his case.

Mumbere was last month charged with murder of a Police Constable Godfrey Kasimba, and remanded as investigations into his case continue.

He appeared before Chief Magistrate John Francis Kaggwa who could not record his plea, saying the offence with which he was charged is only bailable and triable by the High court.

Prosecution alleges that King Mumbere killed Kasimba onMarch 24 2016  at F.F.U  Dettach in Kidodo cell – Kasese Municipality  in  Kasese District.

Mumbere was arrested on November 27 at his Buhikira Royal Palace in Kasese town by the Uganda People’s Defence Forces in a joint operation with police, and was airlifted to Nalufenya prison in Jinja following fresh clashes that rocked Rwenzori region.
