Nakawa court Grade One Magistrate Jackline Kagoya has adjourned to November/8th the case against Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze Bakireke.
Nambooze was not in court by the time her case file was called but her Lawyer Kiwanuka Abdallah informed court that his client was still on her way and that she was very willing to appear.
Meanwhile Prosecution’s Ann Ntimba informed court that investigations into the case are still ongoing.
Nambooze was last month charged with Inciting the public to commit an offense, following her return from India to receive treatment.
Nambooze is currently confined in a wheel chair because she has spinal cord and leg injuries.
Nambooze is alleged to have committed the offence on 9th/June 2018 through statements posted on Social Media, that allegedly incited the public to attack and murder public figures, alleging that however guarded they may be government could not secure them.
Namboze was summoned to explain the alleged statements after the death of Arua Municipality MP Ibrahim Abiriga who was gunned down a few meters away from his home at Kawanda.
She has since denied the charges and she is out on bail.
