Activist William Ntege aka Kyuma kya Yesu has once again been denied bail by Mubende Chief Magistrates’ Court on flimsy grounds that he is nonresident of Mubende magisterial jurisdiction.
Ntege appeared before Mubende Chief Magistrate, Hellen Ajiro who slammed charges of assault on Ntege for allegedly assaulting Kasanda South Member of Parliament, Simeo Nsubuga.
Last week on Wednesday Ntege was remanded to ten days in Kaweeri prison in the same district.Ntege was arrested on Saturday July 31, during Kabaka’s 24th coronation ceremony that was held at Kaweeri Mityana district where he is accused of physically attacking Nsubuga who was on his way to prostrate before Kabaka Ronald Mubende Mutebi II.
Mr. Ntege accused Simeo of spearheading the lifting of the presidential age limit that was set at the age of 75 as per the constitution of Uganda.
Through his layers led by Ladislaus Rwakafuzi, Ntege applied for bail but Ms. Ajiro shunned it claiming that he has presented affidavits that are based in Mubende yet he is not of Mubende.
Among the attendees was the Deputy Minister for Kampala Benny Namugwanya whom supporters of Ntege say was in court to block his releaseothers were legislator Allan Sewanyana and Democratic Party leaders who appreciated Ntege’s move towards the campaign.
