Members of Parliament from Kasese district are not satisfied despite the Rwenzururu king Charles Wesley Mumbere being released on bail for the second time.

On Monday afternoon, visit web Jinja High Court judge Michael Elubu agreed to release the Omusinga on bail after being told the state and the king had struck a deal to resolve the impasse.

Speaking to ChimpReports shortly after the court session, cost Leader of Opposition and Kasese district Woman legislator Winnie Kiiza said that despite being happy with the release of their king, viagra he had not been granted total freedom as a traditional leader.

“The person who is used to seeing and receiving many people should have been allowed to be visited by his subjects.”

During the ruling on bail, Justice Elubu said that Mumbere will have unlimited access to his lawyers and personal doctor but said any other people seeking to visit him ought to seek permission.

According to the Leader of Opposition in Parliament, the Rwenzururu king will not have as enough freedom as expected on his release.

For Kasese Municipality legislator Robert Centenary the release was just a shift of place from one prison to another for Mumbere.

“He is like from Luzira to another prison at his home,” Centenary said stressing that bail only meant to allow their king to be nearer to his children and wife but not his other subjects.

Centenary said that he is sure the Omusinga was pushed to the wall during the negotiations with government but said there was nothing to do.

“Half a loaf is better than nothing and we shall go with that.”

The legislators however said this was only the beginning as they would now embark on seeking bail for the remaining Obusinga royal guards and the kingdom prime minister who are also languishing in jail over Kasese violence related charges.

The state minister for Agriculture who also doubles as the Omusinga’s brother said he was happy negotiations had at last yielded something fruitful for Mumbere.

“We shall continue conducting ourselves high at the platue of discipline until we get to the bottom of this matter,” Kibanzaga said.

The visibly happy Rwenzururu king was then driven to Kimaka airfield before he was later flown to Kampala in a police chopper together with his Queen Agnes Ithungu. The jolly Omusinga was seen waving to his subjects as the chopper left the Jinja airfield.
