Mumbere finally granted bail, restricted from Rwenzori region.

The High Court judge Eva Luswata granted Mumbere bail of sh100m not cash on Friday.
He was released on a non-cash bail of Sh100 million.
His six sureties including the Leader of Opposition, Ms Winfred Kiiza were each bonded at Sh100m not cash.
Part of the many conditions that the king is supposed to abide with includes being restricted to move in only three districts of Kampala, Wakiso and Jinja.

He was however barred from accessing Kasese, Kabarole and Bundibugyo districts as he may reportedly interfere with the ongoing investigations in the Rwenzori region attacks.
The judge in her analysis, dismissed the fears of the state that once the king who commands a huge following of over seven million subjects is released on bail, he will interfere with investigations.
The judge observed that the king’s bail is his constitutional right which overrides the same fears.
She added that prosecution did not substantiate their fears, making them mere hear say.
