Martin Gumbura in fresh freedom bid. Court seeking bail pending leave to appeal his sentence at the Supreme Court. Gumbura was initially slapped with a 40year effective jail term by regional magistrate Hosea Mujaya, but the sentence was this year slashed to five years by the High Court on appeal.

Incarcerated RMG End Time Message church leader Robert Gumbura, who is serving a 20-year effective jail term for sexually assaulting his female congregants, has approached the High

But Gumbura, who is no longer represented by a lawyer, last Thursday filed an application for bail pending leave to appeal the reduced sentence at the Supreme Court on the basis that the High Court misdirected itself when it considered reducing his jail term instead of acquitting him.

National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) representative Editor Mavuto opposed the cleric’s move and challenged him to avail the court record. Mavuto said Gumbura should show the presiding judge where the court allegedly misdirected itself when it reduced his sentence.

“The most important factor in considering the present application is whether or not there are prospects of success on appeal against conviction. In other words, the applicant (Gumbura) is obliged to point in the judgment by the appeal court where exactly the misdirection is. Thus, there is a need for the applicant to attach the record of proceedings together with the judgment of the High Court so that this honourable court can be put into the right picture on the alleged misdirection,” he said.

“Without the complete record of proceedings and judgment of the appeal court, it is submitted that the application is incomplete. It is impossible for this court to access the prospects of success on appeal without the above-mentioned material documents.”

Gumbura is today expected to appear again before Justice Moses Foroma for the determination of his application for freedom.
