S v. Mwambazi 1990 NR 353

Levy J:

Effect of Art 12 of the constitution is that in every case where an accused is unrepresented the presiding officer must inform the accused of the right to representation. Whether a failure to inform an accused of such a right constitutes an irregularity depends on the facts of each case and the extent of accused's own knowledge of his rights.
