Brian Mugabo Pleads Not Guilty


The Judiciary says retracting a guilty plea is not new in the legal world. Judiciary communications officer Solomon Muyita tells NBS that the decision by Brian Mugabo to plead not guilty ahead of his trial on Wednesday is not in any way against court proceedings. But human rights lawyer Nicholas Opio says this being a high profile case, there is need to ascertain if the affidavit presented to court by Luzira Prison paralegal was lodged by Mugabo and not under duress.
