Brian White Remanded to Luzira Till Next Year

Makindye Chief Magistrate Erias Kakooza has charged city socialite Brain Kirumira aka Brian White and one Thomas Okoth, a police officer with attempted murder.

The suspects are accused of shooting and critically injurying one Victor Bitwiire on the night of 13th December 2017 in Munyonyo Buziga, Makindye Division.

These denied the charges and were remanded to Luzira Prison until January 8th 2018.

Remanding the suspects followed a request by the state prosecutor Happiness Ainebyona for more time to be able to peruse through the documents produced in court by the four sureties of the accused persons.

The suspects through their lawyer John Buwombo, had asked court to release them on bail on grounds that the offence against them is bailable, and that they have fixed places of abode in the jurisdiction of this court.

The magistrate in a bid to give both sides a fair hearing, adjourned the matter to early next year, to enable state verify the documents presented by the defence counsel.

Earlier on, the state prosecutor Ainebyona had objected to releasing the applicants, saying that the victim had not yet recorded a police statement since he is still hospitalized in critical condition.

“This case is currently in between attempted murder and murder, so I pray that court declines to hear any application.” added Ainebyona
