Bajjo charged with inciting violence, sent to Luzira

Bajjo in court

Court has Tuesday charged Mukasa Andrew alias Bajjo Events with inciting violence and offensive communication over remarks he made in relation to President Museveni.

Bajjo’s plea was cancelled after his lawyer and Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago told court he needed a translator.

Buganda Road Court Grade One Magistrate Stella Amabiris read out the charges to the promoter before sending him to Luzira prison on remand.

Bajjo, 29, denied the charge of inciting violence but pleaded guilty on offensive communication.

The magistrate adjourned the case until June 25 when Bajjo will take plea on the second count.

The prosecution alleges that during the month of June 2019 at various places of Masaka, Mbarara, Ibanda and Kampala, Bajjo incited members of the public to carry out violent acts against the person of the President.

The state further alleges that Bajjo also in June this year with the intent to disturb the peace and privacy of the President, recorded a video and posted it on social media containing messages that he would overthrow the government before 2021.

Bajjo was arrested on Saturday at Mix Lounge, Centenary Park immediately after a press conference in which he announced a marathon organised to facilitate Kyadondo East Member of Parliament Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.

Bajjo and his colleague Abby Musinguzi alias Abtex in May sued the Police and the Attorney General for stopping Bobi Wine from organising his Kyarenga concerts.
