Socialite Brian Kirumira, a.k.a Bryan White and his body guard Corporal Thomas Okot received momentary reprieve after their application for bail was granted.
The duo is facing attempted murder charges over an incident on December 13 where a one Victor Bitwire was shot and injured.
In his ruling, Chief Magistrate Erias Kakooza tasked Bryan White not to leave the country before the case is closed. He was then asked to pay cash bail of Shs10m and also deposit his passport with court. On the other hand, the suspects’ sureties were bonded Shs20m. The court afterwards adjourned the case to January 30, 2018.
Prosecution states that Kirumira, 32, businessman and resident of Munyonyo-Buziga, Makindye Division in Kampala District and Okot, 28, a police officer attached to Crime Intelligence Headquarters, resident of Mulago Zone, Kawempe Division in Kampala District on December 13, 2017 at Munyonyo -Buziga in Kampala attempted unlawfully to cause the death of Bitwire.
Seemingly relieved, Bryan White however refused to talk to media houses at the Makindye court.
