MP Robert Kyagulanyi, 32 others granted bail


Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and his 32 co-accused have been granted bail by the High Court in Gulu.

Gulu High Court presided over by his Lordship Stephen Mubiru, also granted bail to Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga, Jinja East MP Paul Mwiru, Arua Municipality MP-elect Kasiano Wadri and other political activists who were arrested in Arua.

One of the bail terms restricts Arua Municipality MP Elect Kassiano Wadri not to appear in Arua for a period of three months.

The Presiding Judge premised Mr Kasiano’s restriction on the argument that his presence may complicate police investigations in the area.

He also allowed those who were granted bail to keep their passports, and this makes it possible for those who were arrested, to seek Medical treatment abroad.

All of the bailed applicants were required to execute a non-cash bond of 5 million shillings.

The same condition was imposed on their sureties.

They will be required to report to Gulu Magistrates Court on the 30th, and thereafter, they will be required to report, as and when the Court desires.

Prosecution alleges that Kyagulanyi and his co-accused committed treason when they reportedly threw stones at the President’s convoy in Arua, which they interpreted as an attack on the person of the President.

Former FDC President Kizza Besigye called the events that to Monday’s court session in Gulu ’embarrassing’ for the government of Uganda.
