Drug supply Charges against Adam Kalungi dropped

The Makindye Magistrate’s Court has struck off the charge of supplying restricted drugs off the charge sheet in the case against Adam Suleiman Kalungi.

This is after lawyers representing Kalungi, the key suspect in the death of Butaleja Woman MP Cerinah Nebanda raised queries over the charge sheet.

Led by Mcdusman Kabega and Yunus Kasirivu, the lawyers argued that the charge of supplying and dispensing restricted drugs does not indicate the dates when the said drugs were supplied.

The lawyers also point to the fact that the charge sheet does not state who received the drugs or which specific drugs they are.

The Chief Magistrate Esther Nambayo agreed with the lawyers and has struck the charge off the charge sheet.

Kalungi now faces charges of man slaughter and unlawful possession of narcotic drugs.

He has however declined to apply for bail for fear of being re-arrested but his co-accused persons are currently applying for bail before the court.

The case has now been adjourned to February 5th when the Magistrate shall rule on whether or not to grant the five suspects bail.
