The court is convening in Jinja to give a ruling on whether the Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere attends the burial ceremony of his mother or not.
In 2017, Mumbere was granted a non-cash bail of sh100m by High Court judge Micheal Elubu. However, the judge restricted Mumbere’s movements to Wakiso, Jinja, and Kampala. He was specifically barred never to set foot in Kasese, Bundibugyo and Kabarole unless with a court order.
Mumbere is charged with treason and terrorism following the Kasese fighting between the UPDF and his royal guards in 2016.
