Jailed Rwenzururu cultural leader Charles Wesley Mumbere is today expected to re-appear before Jinja Magistrates court for mention of the treason case against him.
Mumbere is expected to appear before Jinja Court Chief Magistrate John Francis Kaggwa to know the stage of investigations.
He is accused of involvement in a range of offences-all capital in nature including treason, terrorism, and murder, malicious damage to property, attempted murder and aggravated robbery. The offences attract a maximum sentence of death.
The Omusinga is jointly charged with 160 Royal guards and his Prime Minister who were remanded to Kirinya and Bugunga government prisons while the Juveniles are being held at Naguru Remand Home in Kampala.
Prosecution states that between March and November 2016, Mumbere and his co-accused persons plotted to overthrow the government of Uganda by use of firearms.
The accused are said to have expressed such a plot by utterances and attacks on various police installations, killing police personnel, robbing firearms and ammunitions, recruiting and training individuals to join an armed rebel outfit as well as attending meetings abroad and attempting to acquire firearms illegally.
