Arua Mayhem Saga Case Flops, Pushed Till Next Year

The case in which Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu and 34 others are accused of stoning president Museveni’s Car and treason in Arua seems not to ending soon.

This follows the adjournment by the Gulu Magistrate due to what he described as unfinished police investigations.

Bobi Wine, ‘cantankerous’ MP Kasiano Wadri, and 26 others on Monday appeared before Grade One Magistrate Isaac Imoran Kintu for mention of their case.

Prosecution led by Mr Paul Weponde on Monday told court that they were not ready to proceed with the case because police are still gathering evidence against the suspects.

“My lord as usual, the police is not yet done with the investigation, we pray for adjournment,” Mr Weponde told Court.

One of the defence lawyers, Mr Henry Komakech Kilama however said the accused persons are incurring a lot of expenses in travelling to attend the court sessions since most of them stay in Kampala and Arua District.

Komakech asked court to compel the state to expedite investigation adding that a lengthy period of adjournment be given to them (state) to wind up with their investigations.

The state contends that the accused and others still at large pelted stones at one of President Museveni’s car, smashing its hind windscreen on August 13 during Arua Municipality by election campaigns.
