KAMPALA – Kampala High Court has adjourned to January a case in which Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake sued top security officers over torture.
Justice Esta Nambayo, while adjourning the case to January 13, 2021, said this was necessary to enable the complainant (Zaake) and the accused security officers to file written submissions.
“The applicant should file his submissions on October 29, respondents on November 30, and rejoinder on December 7. This case is adjourned to January 13, 2021, for mention which is to ensure that all submissions are on-court record before the ruling date is fixed,” she ruled.
Zaake sued CMI boss Abel Kandiiho, Alex Mwiine, the Mityana DPC, Elly Womanya, SIU commandant, Twesigye Hamdani, Musa Walugembe, the officer in charge of SIU, and Haruna Mulungi Nsamba for torturing him while in detention after he was arrested on allegations that he was distributing food to his electorate against a presidential directive banning gathering to minimise the spread of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.
