A group of protestors have stormed Jinja Court demanding for the release of Eric Sakwa, the Resident District Commissioner (RDC).
Sakwa was arrested Friday and charged with manslaughter.
Sakwa who is accused of causing the death of Charles Isanga, robbery and malicious damage to his property, was maliciously arrested and charged.
However on Saturday morning, protestors armed with placards praising the RDC, broke through the closed court premises trying to force their way into the court rooms.
Protestors claim the area politicians and land grabbers are behind the RDC’s arrest because he has been fighting for the common people.
It is also said that Sakwa has been implementing the president’s directives which a section of politicians in the district did not like.
He is currently on remand at Kirinya government prison in Jinja alongside Bazimbyewa Bumali alias Chris Umar Dindodi, 19, a mechanic and Mohammed Simba alias Meddie, 31, and a businessman in Jinja.
