Court has further remanded until December 13, five members of the National Unity Platform-NUP party in Kasese, following failure by the prosecution failed to show up in court.

The group was arrested by security personnel last month from Kamaiba ward in Kasese Municipality and charged with plotting to overthrow the government.  

Bryan Basisa, the NUP Kasese District Chairperson, Geoffrey Bwambale, the NUP coordinator for Bundibugyo, Atanazio Isanat, a party member from Ntoroko District, Isaac Mumbere-NUP flag bearer for Nyamwamba division in Kasese in the last general elections, and Oniz Kule, a Boda Boda rider from Hima town have been in custody since last month.

The Defence lawyer Emmanuel Kirunde told the court presided over by Justice Okumu Jude Muwone that they were prepared for a bail hearing as had been scheduled by the court.
He further asked the court to consider granting the suspects temporary freedom since they had met all the bail requirements.

While Justice Okumu agreed with the defence that all the five had the right to get bail, he noted that the application can’t be heard due to the absence of the State Attorney who had communicated earlier that he was away on official duty.
