Hearing of the case in which the Rubaga South Member of Parliament is accused of promoting Sectarianism has been adjourned.
Margaret Tibulya, the Buganda Road Court Magistrate, has adjourned the case to May 23rd.
The adjournment is intended to pave way for further consultations with the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The adjournment was preceded by several contentions by Betti's lawyers about the nature of the case against their client.
Kamya's lawyers- David Mpanga, Yusuf Nsibambi and Abdu Katuntu argued that the charges against Betty Kamya are being challenged in the constitutional court.
In February, Kamya was charged with three counts of promoting war against the name of the president, Sectarianism and promoting violence against the President.
Kamya's charges stemmed from an opinion piece she wrote in the Monitor publication of January 28th, questioning President Yoweri Museveni's heritage and his tribal policies.
The law on promoting sectarianism is currently being challenged in the Constitutional Court.
Kamya's lawyers asked the Chief Magistrate to adjourn the hearing pending the outcome of the constitutional court ruling.
They also argued that the adjournment should be able to give time to the prosecutors to produce the list of witnesses against Betty Kamya.
