I can’t write, I have a problem, so go write your submissions and present them tomorrow (Friday) so that we can pass through them.

Ms Mudhasi stated

Juliet Hantanga, Mukono Chief Magistrate on June 10th directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to arrest Kyaligonza after skipping court summons three times.

Kyaligonza’s guards including Cpl Peter Busindiche and Private John Okurut arrested as well.

June 10 was the stated date for Kyaligonza to appear before the Magistrate to answer charges of assault and occasioning bodily harm to a traffic officer Sgt Esther Namaganda last year on 24 of February in Seeta along Mukono Jinja high way. But Kyaligonza failed to show up. This made Hantanga instruct his arrest.
