The Kiyaga Zone LCI Chairperson in Kawempe Division who allegedly disarmed a policeman has been granted bail.

Last week, police arrested Joachim Kimera for allegedly disarming Corporal Jack Rutabaleka, while on duty. The incident happened during the youth elections at Kiyaga Zone Bwaise I, Kawempe Division during the declaration of results.

Rutabaleka, was providing security at the polling station when six men came from behind and grabbed him unaware, in the process Kimera allegedly disarmed him.

Others who were arrested included his secretary Twaha Nkata and a group of six youths led by Makerere University Guild President Julius Kateregga.

The six appeared before Nabweru Court Grade One Magistrate Achok Abrahams Moding on charges of being armed in a public place contrary to section 75 (a) of the Penal Code Act.    They denied the charges and were remanded to Kasangati Prisons until August 27th.

On Thursday, Moding granted Kiyaga and the others bail and adjourned the case to October 1st to allow prosecution finish investigations.

However, Kimera did not turn up in court citing an ailment by his lawyers led by Shamim Malende.

However, Kateregga contends that the charges are intended to disrupt them from fighting for their rights.
