Wamana has denied the charges consented to by the Director of Public Prosecutions. The Prosecution's Nicholas Kawoya has informed the Court that he is not the Prosecutor in personal conduct of this case and therefore asked the Court for an adjournment to enable the prosecutor in this case to update the court on the status of investigations.

Wamana asked Court to stand over the proceedings to enable his relatives to come to court and stand surety for him in vain . The Court granted him a stand over of 20 minutes but afterwards sent him to Luzira Prison until March 26th 2024 after his relatives failed to show up.

He denied the charges although he kept saying he should be given permission to say something in relation to the accusations against him. Court couldn't grant him this permission but instead to record a plea.
