Police arrests TikToker who abused Kabaka

Must read

Police have arrested a 27-year-old man who filmed himself and posted on TikTok a video recording abusing the Kabaka.

Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said the Directorate of Crime Intelligence picked Ibrahim Musana a resident of Kauga in Mukono after video clips of him abusing the Kabaka of Buganda Kingdom and Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga went viral.

“He was picked following a series of hate crimes, defamation of the Kabaka and Katikkiro and a lot of offensive communication through various digital communication channels,” Enanga said.

Last week, social media was awash with videos of Musana abusing Kabaka and Buganda. The videos that went viral especially on TikTok were condemned by the public.

According to Enanga, following arrest by Crime Intelligence, Musana was handed over to the Criminal Investigations Directorate where detectives are now processing him on various charges of misuse of social media, hate speech, offensive communication and incitement to violence.

“We are aware a large section of people in Buganda are annoyed with these speeches which are embarrassing and disrespectful. As a country, we have very strict laws against incitement to violence, hate speech and any kind of offensive communication which we can’t allow to continue since it can cause devastating effects to communities,” Enanga said.

He noted police will continue arresting perpetrators of hateful ideology, not only against the Kabaka of Buganda but against all Ugandans and visitors to the county.
