Nakawa court chief magistrate Agnes Alum has further remanded to Luzira prison a British of Nigerian national Charles Lambert and his Kenyan counterpart Caroline Waithera Waweru who are charged with Giving false or misleading information.

Lamber the Chairman of the Development Conglomerate Ltd and Waweru the Director of the said Company had appeared today for their bail application.

However the chief magistrate was forced to remand them until the 17th of this month after mix up in their bail applications.

This is after their lawyer Moses Mugabe failed to present bail application as scheduled.

Mugabe informed court that although he was meant to argue Waweru’s application, he instead presented Court documents for Charles Lambert forcing the Magistrate to adjourn the matter to the 17th on grounds that the Lawyer was not prepared enough.

It is alleged that between October, 2017 and November 2018, in various parts of Uganda Lambert and Caroline disseminated misleading information to induce members of the public to purchase shares in his Company, knowing or having reason to believe that such information was false.
