Despite the fact that most Ugandans especially people power supporters were anxiously waiting for the appearance of the Kyadondo East legislator in Buganda road court today for his bail application hearing, the MP was a no show.
This followed a decision by the court to have Kyagulanyi take his court session while in Luzira prisons on video conferencing.
However, although many thought of this as a technological milestone, some members present at court including Honorable Allan Ssewanyana condemned the act saying it was malice towards the accused not to bring him in court in person.
Ssewanyana says Hon. Kyagulanyi’s persecution has awakened Ugandans who are no longer intimidates but are fighting for their civil rights adding that this scares the sitting government thus such irrational decisions.
Kyagulanyi was however granted a one million cash bail and his sureties 10 million shillings non cash each.
His surities included former minister Miria Matembe, NRM MPs Gafa Mbwa tekamwa and Oshabe Patrick Nsamba.
The presiding magistrate Esther Nahilya cautioned Kyagulanyi against engaging in unlawful demonstrations lest his bail be cancelled.
