Iron Sheet Scandal: 8 Activists remanded Till May 29


Buganda Road Court Magistrate, Justice Seina Owomugisha has remanded eight activists to Luzira Prison until May 29.

These are battling with charges of insisting Violence additional to the current case of assault allegedly committed as police moved to arrest 11 people who were protesting delayed prosecution of ministers and MPs implicated in the iron sheets scandal.

Before remanding those back to Luzira Magistrate Justice Owomugisha said they have the right to have bail but the time to process was very late (4:30 pm) and told them to come back in court on May 29 for a bail application hearing which led to one Nelson Ndyasiima to collapse down.

Meanwhile, Habibu Buwembo among the leaders of the activists said that it is very sad if the court can fail to give justice to whistle browsers of corruption yet the culprits are out on bail.

“What has been done today is unfair. These people have spent 33 days in prison. We have been given bail raised the money and from nowhere, they have brought another case,” he said  

Denis Kasuwuli among the activists from Makindye Division has condemned opposition members of Parliament for failing to help these foot soldiers to get out of jail.

“These activists are fighting for Ugandans who have lost their properties (iron sheets) to thieves. We expected that there will be MPs here to fight and secure their release, we call upon all MPs to consider these activists because they are literally doing your job,” he said
