Here are the reasons why Sipapa is to rot in prison

Jailed socialite Charles Olim alias Sipapa has been abandoned by his owner lawyers for failure to pay them.

The Socialite was arrested together with his wife Shamilah Nakiyimba for robbing Jacob Arok a South Sudan native, Shs1.6billion from his home in Kawuku-Bunga.

Sipapa and Nakiyimba were charged and remanded to Luzira Prison.

His lawyers of Elgon Advocates led by Robert Rutaro have expressed their disappointment in the duo for failing to pay their legal fees

“To our disappointment, you have not paid even a single coin to the firm as legal fees. The nature of your case being grave/ and given the nature of evidence involved, your case requires high a level of research and sophisticated technical expertise to have strong defences as counsel would have to spend sleepless nights reading the law in and out in order to ably represent you. That kind of preparedness must be facilitated and remunerated,” the lawyers says in the letter to Sipapa, copied to the Makindye Chief Magistrates court, Resident State Attorney for Makindye and the officer in charge of Luzira Upper Prisons.

They added through the letter that,

“Despite our repetitive demands to you including several visits to you at Luzira Maximum Prisons where we discussed the subject of legal fees, you have failed and or refused to pay for our services. All the contacts you asked us to see or meet for payment have not been helpful either.”

Sipapa and his wife, Shamilah Nakiyimba face charges related to aggravated robbery contrary to section 285and 286 of the Penal Code Act .

This is according to Ugolemwa website.
