100 Suspects Rounded up In Bobi Wine Riots to be charged in Court tomorrow

Over 100 suspects will tomorrow Thursday be charged at Buganda road court and other courts outside Kampala over illegal demonstration and inciting violence in areas of Kampala, Katwe and Mukono.
The case file has been sanctioned by area residence state Attorneys.

Police on Monday arrested at least 123 people involved in the riots in Kampala, Mukono and Katwe while the biggest number was picked from the notorious Kisekka Market and a few from the outskirts of Kampala City.

After the screening of the suspects, many have been released by police and those who remained are believed to have participated in inciting and stoning police officers and destroying property during operation to calm down the situation.

Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire says suspects will appear tomorrow in Buganda road, Makindye and Mukono magistrates’ courts.

Luke added that, “we are going to be out in massive force and basically we are going to be patrolling the streets to ensure that we protect property. Therefore I call upon citizens to find lawful means of expressing their emotions rather than violating the law,”
