Buganda Road Court has remanded Ashiraf Kato alias Ashburg, the founder of Ghetto TV, a Youtube channel for broadcasting pornographic material.

Ashburg is a renowned critic of city socialite Bryan White.

He appeared on Friday before the new Buganda Road Chief Magistrate, Mariam Ayo.

Prosecution alleges that on May 24, 2018, Kato, a resident of Makindye Stella Zone broadcasted nude pictures of Lillian Rukundo, a mass communication student at the Uganda Christian University in Mukono on Ghetto TV.

Prosecution also alleges that on May 25, 2018, the accused, together with Rukundo posted Rukundo’s nudes with intentions of persuading the viewers sexually, which is illegal in Ugandan laws.

Kato pleaded not guilty to the charges and applied for bail on grounds that he spent more than ten days in police cells, where he was tortured.

However, magistrate, Ayo rejected the bail application, saying she couldn’t release him without knowing the whereabouts his co accused, Rukundo.  She remanded Kato to Luzira prison until July 16 when he will return to court for the mention of his case.

Kato was picked up together with Rukundo and were locked up at Katwe police station.
