Rwanda: Police Fc Shoot Down APR in Epic Battle

Buganda Road Court Chief Magistrate has refused to grant bail to Ellady Muyambi who is accused of forging President Museveni’s signature in a sectarian document purportedly sent to the late Libyan leader, page Col Muammar Gaddafi.

The magistrate said the suspect had fallen short of providing substantial sureties to secure bail.

Muyambi, abortion through his lawyer Friday Roberts Kagoro, sales had presented to court two sureties identified as Obedi Muhereza and James Tugume whom the magistrate rejected on grounds that they presented conflicting information about their places of abode.

The magistrate pushed the hearing of the bail application to July 2 to enable the defence present another set of sureties with all the required documents.

On June 19, 2015 Muyambi was charged at Buganda Road court with two counts of promoting sectarianism and forgery contrary to sections 342 and 347 of Penal Code Act.

Prosecution alleges that Muyambi and others still at large at Kiwonvu zone, Kalerwe village in Kampala District, with an intent to deceive or defraud, made a false document with a headed letter titled “A personal note of thanks” dated 25th  January 2010, purported to have been  authored by H.E  Yoweri . K Museveni president of the republic of Uganda purportedly addressed to Col Muammar Gadaffi , the president of Libya which was not true.

On the count of promoting sectarianism, prosecution alleges that between July 2012 and June 2015, Muyambi and others at large printed a document entitled “Do we understand Museveni’s real mission”   with  other quotations such as; “most of the Banyankole supporting Museveni are Batutsi but mostly Bahororo ,Bairu who form the majority in Ankole have been impoverished and marginalized.”

Other quotes include: “Banyankole are dying of poverty and related diseases. They are voiceless and powerless. What the Batutsi did in South Western Uganda to impoverish the Bairu is being extended to other groups in Uganda including Buganda.”


Prosecution said the statement was likely to promote sectarian feelings or hostility among the affected group.

On the second count of promoting sectarianism, it is alleged that Muyambi with others at large between January 2010 and 5th June 2015 at Kiwonvu zone Kampala printed a document titled carrying sectrain content.

Some of the reportedly offensive phrases are: “These riotous Baganda? I have to save them from themselves most of the time. Who else? My comrades in the struggle? Wapakhabulo is dead, Kategeya is useless, Bukenya is a waste of time, so who do they want me to step down for? Mbabazi, a Mukiga? What is the difference between a Mukiga and Bahutu?”

President Museveni responded angrily to the widely circulated sectarian audios on WhatsApp.

Museveni said NRM holds in contempt the conveyors of such primitive attitudes, warning that the culprits will soon be brought to book.

“Authorities will have these people traced. Police will arrest them for public prosecution so that they reap what they sowed,” warned Museveni who described himself as “Ssabalwanyi” (king of warriors).

The President said human beings are equal before God, adding he will not tolerate discrimination and abuse of tribes.

He maintained that peaceful coexistence of people is the foundation of peace, stability and economic transformation.

“Those foolish people in the WhatsApp audio are using technology to speak nonsense. Government and God will help them reap what they sowed. No one is allowed to trample on other people’s rights,” he added.
