Events and Music Promoter, also a People Power activist Andrew Mukasa aka Bajjo Events has finally been granted bail by Buganda Road Magistrates Court and now free out of Prison where he has been remanded to for almost a full month.
The Magistrate Stella Maris Amabilis on Thursday granted a cash bail of four million shillings to Bajjo and his three sureties have been bonded 20 million shillings non-cash.
The sureties are Abbey Musinguzi also an Events Promoter popularly known as Abitex, Aloysius Matovu Kiiza an employee of Buganda Broadcasting Services (BBS TV) and Democratic Party’s Moses Bigirwa.
However, State Prosecutor Patricia Cingtho had objected to his bail application stating that investigators, in this case, swore an affidavit saying that Bajjo would interfere with investigations once released.
The Magistrate noted that the sureties are substantial and directed them to deposit their National Identification cards with court. She has advised them to return to court on July 25th, 2019 should they fail to meet the bail conditions.
Bajjo is charged with offensive communication and inciting violence. His troubles started on June 15th, 2019 when he was picked by security operatives from Centenary Park.
Bajjo was addressing journalists on a marathon to raise funds for the Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi also known as Bobi Wine. He was later held at Special Investigations Unit of Police in Kireka before being arraigned at Buganda Road Magistrates Court.
Prosecution alleges that Bajjo in June at various places in Masaka Kampala, Ibanda incited the public against the person of the President. The prosecution further that in the same areas, Bajjo wilfully and repeatedly with intent to disturb the person and privacy of the President, recorded a video and posted it on social media containing inciting messages.
