Court Adjourns Bobi Wine, 34 Others Treason Trial to December

The case in which Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) and more than 30 others are accused of treason has been put on hold for another two months.

On Monday, when the suspects appeared for mention of their case, Gulu Grade One magistrate Yusuf Ndiwalana went on to adjourn the case until December 3.

The lengthy adjournment followed a request by the accused lawyer, Asuman Basalirwa.

Basalirwa asked court to consider long adjournment for the benefit of his clients since majority of them come from far away (Arua and Kampala).

The accused were arrested following a by-election campaign in the northern town of Arua in August and are alleged to have stoned President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy. They deny the charges.

Treason charges have been brought against Mr Museveni’s political opponents in the past but the cases either drag on in court or the charges are eventually dropped.

At the last hearing in August, there were 33 people charged in this case but since then two more of Bobi Wine’s associates have been added to the charge sheet, making a total of 35 people.
