Court further remands former RCC Burora

Must read

The former Deputy Resident City Commissioner (RCC) for Rubaga, Anderson Herbert Burora, has been further remanded to Luzira prisons. 

Burora was arrested last week and detained at Kira Road police station and later at Central Police station. He was arraigned before the Buganda Road Chief Magistrate and subsequently remanded to Luzira.

He is facing charges of hate speech and spreading malicious information against Speaker of Parliament Anita Among. After appearing before magistrate Ronald Kayizi earlier today, Buroro was further remanded until July 12, 2024.

Prosecution alleges that between March 2024 and June 2024 in the areas of Kampala District or thereabout, while using a computer via X handle shared information that is likely to ridicule, degrade, demean, and promote hostility against a person of the Anita Annet Among, the Speaker of Parliament of the Republic of Uganda.

Lawyer David Kamukama, the accused’s lawyer, said the charge sheet, the way it stands, defends the rules of drafting a charge sheet. The person appearing in court should be given facts and understand the cases he committed. 

“The charge sheet before the court alleges that he made work between March and June. The words were not produced. Surely the works must be specific; they can’t be guessed. He could have made words about greetings, praising her but saying that whatever you made between March and June is improper,” he said.

He said that the complainant has failed to prove that the Twitter handles she claims to have been used belong to Henderson Burora. Any person can use it, including the complainant, and it alleges that it is our client. He asked that the matter be dismissed.
