The accused’s lawyer John Bulombo however asked court to release the accused on bail saying it was their constitutional right.
He presented four people to stand surety for the accused.
However the state prosecutor, Happiness Ainebyona asked for more time to be able to peruse through the documents sent to her before responding to the bail application by Bryan White’s lawyer.
The chief magistrate Erias Kakooza adjourned the case to January 8th before remanding the two to Luzira prison.
Bryan White has been in police custody since December 13 when he was arrested on allegations of shooting Victor Bitwire whom sources have revealed he might be a close relative to Hon. Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda.
He had been transferred from Kabalagala police division in Kampala to Nalufenya, a high profile police detention facility in Jinja District on orders of the Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura after he reportedly received information that the gun White used to shoot Bitwire was not registered by any security agencies in Uganda.
