  The Mbarara Grade One Magistrates court has adjourned a case in which Forum for Democratic Change-FDC party leaders are accused of inciting violence.

The leaders among them former FDC president Kiiza Besigye, Ingrid Turinawe and Besigye's driver appeared in court on Thursday on charges of assaulting police officers and inciting the public against the police.

They allegedly committed the offences last year while campaigning for FDC party president Patrick Oboi Amuriat.

Sanyu Mukasa, the Grade One Magistrate adjourned the case after prosecution failed to present the witnesses.

Lawyers to the accused persons Lydia Ahimbisibwe and Elias Lukwago prayed for a verdict on the case. However, they were over ruled by the magistrate who adjourned the case to September 19th.

However, the Mbarara Resident State Attorney Caroline Keshuubi revealed that the witnesses will be in court during the next court appearance.

Shortly after the case was adjourned, Besigye told journalists that next month will be his last time to appear in court. 

Besigye revealed that the delays in delivering justice is a clear indication that the systems are no longer working and that the regime is only trying to harass and undermine the finance and ability of the opposition to mobilize.
