A warrant of arrest has been issued yesterday against Mark Nalua, co-accused in the Lungga murder incident, for not appearing in court.
The case was mentioned in court but Nalua did not turn up thus the case is adjourned for today for ruling on the short form preliminary inquiry.
This is in relation to the case against two men Mark Nalua and Barnabas Mwema who were charged with one of murder each in relation to an incident which occurred at the Lungga area in 2015.
On the previous mention the court made directions for the two defence lawyers to explain in court as to why they opted for a Long Form Preliminary Inquiry and also for a pre-trial conference to be conducted.
However, when the case mentioned in court yesterday the other counsel representing the other co-accused failed to appear and also failed to leave instructions on the status of the case in relation to her client.
Therefore the case is adjourned to August 4 and orders that counsels responsible for the case to appear in court.
This case involves the death of a man at the Sisi dance area in Lungga in 2015.
Office of the Director Public Prosecution appears for the state.
