Bajjo in the dock

The Buganda Road Magistrates Court has released the proprietor of Bajjo Events and Marketing Agency Limited, Andrew Mukasa after spending 22 days in Luzira Remand Prison.

Mukasa is grappling with charges of offensive communication and incitement of violence against the person of President Yoweri Museveni.

Appearing court magistrate, Stella Amabirisi, Mukasa was granted cash bail of 4 million while his three sureties were each bonded at Shs20 million, not cash.

His sureties included Democratic Party’s (DP) Moses Bigirwa, Abby Musigunzi aka Abtex and Aloysius Matovu Junior were also ordered to deposit their national identity cards until the case is disposed.

Mukasa was arrested on June 16,2019, moments after addressing the press on the plan to hold a marathon in a bid to raise funds to facility the re-election of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine in the 2021 parliamentary election.

Mukasa and Abbey Musinguzi, the CEO of Abtex Productions claim that the current government has since denied them a livelihood after it declined to allow Bobi Wine hold music shows of which they were the organisers and claim to have lost hundreds of millions of money.

Mukasa was on June 18 arraigned before Buganda road magistrate Stella Amabirisi, charged and was subsequently remanded to Luzira Prison.
