Police Officer Fails to Testify in DP Activist Case

Buganda road grade one Magistrate Stella Amabirisi has set 31st January to hear Police officer Emmanuel Mbonimpa testifying in the case in which Democratic Party Member Chief Mboowa Moses is accused of using his social media platforms to incite members of the public to attack MPs who supported the Presidential Age limit amendment.

Mbonimpa was expected to be in court yesterday but Abdul Salam Waiswa, the counsel representing Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) informed court that the witness was on an assignment in Mbarara thus asked for an adjournment.

The defense however, strongly protested these claims, noting that the case has been in court for almost three years.

In the end, Counsel Waiswa, the Magistrate, and Defense Counsel Chrysostom Katumba agreed to the adjournment.

The bail of the accused person was also extended up to the next hearing date.

It is alleged that Chief Mbowa in September 2017 used his social media platforms and posted videos and audio clips wherein he incited the public to attack MPs who were in support of the amendment of the constitution to remove the presidential age limit.
