The Omusinga Wa Rwenzururu, Charles Wesley Mumbere has been charged with murder and remanded to Nalufenya prison until 13th December, 2016.

Appearing before Jinja Chief Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday afternoon, the Omusinga wasn’t given a chance to defend himself and was remanded as investigations continue.

Mumbere was on Sunday arrested from his Kingdom, Rwenzururu and lifted in a police helicopter to Nalufenya where was detained together with some of his subjects.

Court accuses Mumbere of being the mastermind of the Kasese attacks that resulted to death of over 100 people.

He will be expected to file his defence against the allegations on 13th December.
