Embattled city socialite Charles Olim alias Sipapa and his wife Shamira Nakiyemba’s days in prison might have elongated since their defense lawyer’s decision to terminate their services.
The socialite lawyer’s from Elgon Advocates led by Robert Rutaro Muhairwe terminated their services due to Sipapa’s failure to foot the legal fees that they had agreed upon.
The letter that has since been shared online notes that since Sipapa’s case is capital and given the nature of evidence so far availed, needs high and sophisticated expertise to handle.
Thus the fact that Sipapa has failed to pay for the firm’s legal services and based on grounds that all the individuals he directed them to pick payment have not been of help, they decided to ditch his case.
They have since directed that if he gets new counsel’s to give them their direction and pick all his forms.
Below is the letter as it reads in full;
