The trial of the jobless youth on May 17, 2016 ran into a snag.
The defense lawyer for the jobless youth, Mr. Isaac Semakadde found this out when he inquired from the State Witness, Mr. Bernard Twesigye how the piglets were doing.
This is when Twesigye revealed that one of the piglets had died in custody and the other one was proving to be costly to care for.
According to Twesigye, the piglet died at the Nambya Police Station of starvation.
Looking after the piglets for such a long time apparently proved to be too costly and too difficult. The police station does not have a holding cell for pigs and was not supplied with any resources to use to care for the piglets.
The two piglets were confiscated on June 17, 2014 when the jobless youth Mr. Norman Tumuhimbise and Mr. Robert Mayanja were arrested after smuggling the yellow piglets onto parliament property.
According to Twesigye, the police had no idea of how to care for pigs.
The Jobless Brotherhood race charges of interfering with parliament, conspiracy to commit misdemeanor and trespassing.
The case has been adjourned until May 23, 2016.
