Ruhinda County Member of Parliament Capt (rtd) Donozio Mugabe Kahonda has been granted bail by Jinja High Court Judge Eva Luswata, and ordered to pay non-cash deposit of Shs100m, deposit his passport in court and to also report to court on the 30th day of every month. However, after granting him bail, Kahonda was locked up and after an hour, reportedly whisked off in a prison bus back to Kirinya prison.
Kahonda, who is represented by Alaka and Company Advocates, had previously been sentenced to nine months in Kirinya prison by Jinja Chief Magistrate John Francis Kagwa on June 7, after he was found guilty of false recruitment to the military academy in Jinja, impersonation, forgery and uttering false documents.
It is said that Mr. Kahonda uttered ordinary and advance level certificates that he presented to Ndejje University for admission in the names of Mutabazi Leven Dickson and forged a medical report that he presented to the military academy at the time he joined the army.
Under almost similar charges, on Friday, July 22 Mr. Kahonda was taken from Kirinya prison and produced before Luweero chief magistrate Charles Sserubuga, who charged him with forgery and uttering of false documents.
