Incarcerated opposition leader Kizza Besigye will appear at Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court tomorrow morning, according to FDC sources.
The Uganda Judiciary in a message today said Besigye’s case is still in the Chief Magistrate Court and that once investigation is done, the file shall be forwarded to High Court for trail.
Besigye who is currently on remand at Luzira prisons, is being charged with treason and terrorism.
Solomon Muyita, judiciary communications officer said Besigye’s file was expected in court on May 25 for mention of the case.
He also said the state is also considering adding more suspects to Besigye’s treason case.
Now sources in Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] tell us Besigye is being taken to Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court on Wednesday at 9:00am to reportedly amend the charges or read new charges.
“The circumstances under the sudden change of events yet to be known,” FDC handlers said.
“We have been informed by his lawyers that the state has already served them with a notice,” the source said.
The source said they suspect more “tramped up” charges could be heaped on Besigye.
Nakawa Chief Magistrate, James Mawanda, reportedly on Tuesday ordered Luzira Prisons authorities to produce Besigye before Nakawa court on Wednesday to be read his charges afresh.
Meanwhile, three top FDC officials have already been summoned by Special Investigations Unit in Kireka to record statements.
The Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Wafula Oguttu, appeared this morning and recorded a statement.
Geoffrey Ekanya and Wasswa Birigwa are also expected to record statements for allegedly taking part in Besigye’s swearing in ceremony.
