Buganda Road Court has adjourned hearing of the case against Kyadondo East legislator Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and four others over charges of disobedience of lawful orders by holding a protest against Shs200 social media and mobile money taxes.
The matter was adjourned by Magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu because the presiding magistrate Esther Nahirya was indisposed.
During the session, the prosecutor informed court that Bobi Wine and one of his co-accused, David Luke, were not present.
The prosecutor sought criminal summons to be issued against the duo.
They are accused alongside Julius Katongole (student), Fred Ssentamu Nyanzi (businessman and a brother to Bobi Wine) and Edward Sebuufu (barber) who attended court.
Kamasanyu adjourned the matter to August 12 and issued criminal summons against Lule and Bobi Wine.
Prosecution alleges that Bobi Wine alongside four others on July 11, 2018, at City Square in Kampala District, disobeyed Sections 5 and 10 of the Public Order Management Act 2013 by holding a public meeting without giving notice to any authorised officer, without adhering to the required criteria and refusing to cooperate with the police.
