Ever Luswata the high court judge has permitted Rwenzururu Charles Wesely Mumbere to attend the funeral of the late Biira Christine Mukiraniya who passed on this week on Wednesday at Milembe mines hospital.

However, the judge has put on him several restrictions including staying in Kasese for only four days and not to address his people in any other meeting besides the at the funeral.
Mumbere is expected to present himself in court on 1st July and the restrictions will resume as before of staying within 14 districts of Kampala, Jinja and Wakiso.
Samuel Muyizzi Mulindwa, Mumbere’s counsel has declared that this has encouraged them further to continue fighting for his client's freedom.
Robert centenary the Kasese municipality MP and other MPs expressed their joy for the release of their cultural leader.
The late mother to Mumbere has for long been suffering from diabetes and hypertension. However, there has been a contestation on when and where the deceased should be buried between Christopher Kibazanga the minister of agriculture & Mubere due to fear that Mumbere could be prohibited from attending the burial in Kasese.
