Buganda Road Court has issued criminal summons against Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Hon Kyagulanyi Ssentamu (Bobi Wine) and David Lule aka Selector Davie for failure to show up in court today
The two are charged alongside 3 others for holding an unlawful procession in Kampala in protest against the introduction of the OTT tax last year.
Defense lawyers led by Kiwanuka Abdullah this morning asked court to have the matter adjourned because their clients were unable to make it to court, having travelled late from upcountry last night.
Kiwanuka also asked court to order the prosecution to serve them with all relevant documents so as to prepare their defence in time
The matter was adjourned to 12th August 2019 and the Prosecution was ordered to serve the defence with all relevant documents not later than today.
The other suspects in this matter, who were present in court today include Eddie Sebuufu aka Eddie Mutwe and Nyanzi Fred Sentamu
Prosecution contends that during the month of July 2018, Hon Kyagulanyi with his co accused at City Square in Kampala Central disobeyed sections the Public Order Management Act by holding a public meeting without adhering to the required criteria.
