Hearing of the torture case filed by Mityana Municipality Member of Parliament Francis Zaake against 4 senior police officers has been pushed to January 2021.
In a session that was closed to journalists, High Court Judge Esther Nambayo ordered the parties to file written submissions and report back to court on January 13th 2021 for mention of the case.
In May 2020, Zaake through his lawyer Eron Kiiza dragged government to court seeking compensation for the alleged torturous acts they say were meted on him by officers of the Uganda Police Force.
Hon. Zaake specifically mentions Bob Kagarura; the Wamala Regional Police Commander, Mityana District Police Commander Alex Mwine, Elly Womonya; the Commandant Special Investigations Unit and Abel Kandinho, the head of the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence as his tormentors. END
