“I was neither arrested nor jailed. I was asked to appear before a magistrate where I was charged with threatening violence,” he explained.

“It was the 1st time I was hearing about the issue. No criminal summons, police statement. I have been going to court on foot.”

He argued that if he had knocked someone with “my car, then why charge me with threatening violence, why not a traffic offence?

Kabushenga said that it was his uncle, Hamlet Mbabazi and his son Gerald who filed a “false” criminal report to get him arrested so that he does not testify.

The charge sheet

“I testified against my uncle who is trying to take the family estate by crook. So, when I was going out to lunch, I was prevented by 5 policemen from exiting the court premises so I stayed in the courtroom.”

He adds: “But my lawyer insisted that I be charged so I get bail rather than CIID chaps putting me in a cell falsely.”

The receipt for his bail paid at Post Bank

He further accuses his uncle for “colluding with CIID cops to try and put me in a cell so to take pictures of me for the tabloids”.

“My uncle and his son were standing outside the gates with cameras hoping to take embarrassing photos of me being grabbed by police.”
