While appearing on NBS TV in the morning breeze show today morning, the Uganda Prisons spokesperson, Frank Baine said that they have already baptized the king of Rwenzururu, Charles Wesley Mumbere with a prison number and a yellow suit since all prisoners are treated equally and they live as family.
“For us in prison, we live as family. Everyone is treated equally. We have received Omusinga Charles Mumbere, we have already baptized him with a prison number and the yellow suit,” He said.
Baine asserted that Mumbere will be joining other inmates during ‘counting parade’ while putting on his prison wear and will also squat during the process.
However, he said prison will not be able to grant the court’s order of availing the Omusinga with a fridge in his cell since Luzira cells don’t have sockets inside but will the fridge will be put somewhere else for Mumbere to access cold drinks.
” Court said Omusinga should have access to a fridge; but there are no sockets inside cells. We shall put the fridge somewhere else. We are not disobeying the magistrate’s order for Omusinga to have a fridge, but he can’t have it in his cell,” Baine added.
