Uganda Police Force have released controversial sports writer-turned-columnist, Joseph Kabuleta on bond, Chimp Corps report.
Kabuleta was picked by police detectives last week for posting “offensive” comments about President Museveni on Facebook.
Police Spokesperson Free Enanga confirmed the development.
“Yes, he has been released,” said Enanga in an interview with this website on Tuesday evening.
Kabuleta was released at around 6:00pm.
Enanga said Kabuleta will be reporting to CID Kireka as investigations into his case continue.
Earlier, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Mike Chibita promised to make a decision on Kabuleta’s case file before the close of Friday this week.
Chibita said his office was still examining the file.
“It is true we received the file but it is still under perusal and a decision has not yet been taken on what to do next with it,” said Chibita.
Police on Tuesday dispersed several protesters at the Special Investigations Division (SIU) in Kireka demanding the release of Kabuleta.
The protesters, comprising mainly members of his Watchman Ministries, started assembling at the entrance of SIU around 8:30am calling for Kabuleta’s release after he was arrested over the weekend on charges of offensive communication after he referred to president, Yoweri Museveni as a thief, gambler and liar.
Police have since threatened to take decisive action against anyone who abuses the head-of-State on social media.
