The incarcerated Rwenzururu King Charles Wesley Mumbere in expected to appear before Jinja Magistrates’ court this morning for mention of his charges.

Mumbere was charged with murder by the same court on November 29 and was remanded to Nalufenya prison.

All roads leading to court have been blocked by police for unknown reasons as Mumbere reappears in court.

Meanwhile, the pro-Mumbere youths are all seen at court premises in t-shirts with words ‘stop genocide against the Bakonjo’.

It’s worth noting that Mumbere was arrested at the end of November from his palace following the clashes between the royal guards and UPDF/ Police

He was accused of being the mastermind of the clashes that left over 100 people dead and 137 were arrested.

Meanwhile, police has prepared 19 other more charges to be slapped on Mumbere, one of them being arson.
