Court orders police to release Novelist Kakwenza Rukirabashaija

It’s been many days since Novelist Kakwenza Rukirabashaija has been in police custody lasting over a period of a week without trial and the high court has requested for his release immediately.

However, the Grade One Magistrate Irene Nambatya has issued an order form after Kakwenza’s lawyers Eron Kiiza, Nalukoola Luyimbazi, and Samuel Wanda made an application demanding his unconditional release.

Kakwenza’s lawyer further told the court that the client was held in incommudo and he has no access to his family, legal team or his doctors.

He further argued that Kakwenza has been in unknown detention without being produced in court within the mandatory 48 hours which is a violation of his constitutional right to liberty and fair hearing.

During a media briefing on Monday, Charles Twiine, the CID spokesperson, informed the press that Kakwenza would be taken to court on Tuesday morning. However, his lawyers and friends as well as some family members showed up early in the morning in anticipation that they would see their person, in vain.

“Despite police promising to bring him to Court yesterday, they are dithering and reluctant to bring a tortured Kakwenza Rukirabashaija in court and bent on continuing his illegal incommunicado detention in an Entebbe SFC facility” Kiiza said.

The family members and lawyers of Kakwenza have not had contact with him after his arrest eight days ago.

Kakwenza is being charged for offensive communication by a tweet posted directed to the President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on December 24th and the first son Lt. Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba in December 2021. It remains unclear where he is being held.
