Author Kakwenza Rukira charged and remanded to Kitalya Prison

Author Kakwenza Rukira has been charged with 2 counts of offensive communication and remanded to Kitalya Prison.

Kakwenza will be there until the 21st of January 2022 until when he can reappear in court for the case to be heard again and application for his bail.

This was revealed by Charles Twiine the PRO of the Criminal Investigations Directorate.

Kakwenza has been held incommunicado now for almost a fortnight.

Despite court orders towards the state to produce him dead or alive, they were defied and he was kept by his captors.

A lot of people both on the local political and international scene have been calling for his release but in vain.

He was arrested allegedly on the orders of Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba.

This was after offensive tweets that included body shaming aimed at Muhoozi and his father, President Museveni.
