Daily Nation reports that Gulu High Court has granted Bobi Wine bail, leaving him and a dozen other defendants also charged with treason free pending their scheduled appearance in court on August 30. Celebration among supporters ensued, though juxtaposed with painful scenes as Bobi Wine and other defendants, having been tortured while in detention, needed to be escorted from the courthouse into ambulances as a result of severe injuries.
Uganda’s Gulu High Court has granted bail to Kyaddondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and 12 others who are facing treason charges.
Justice Stephen Mubiru also granted bail to Arua Municipality MP-elect Kassiano Wadri, Jinja East MP Paul Mwiru, Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga and a host of other political activists.
Outside the court, there were two stand-by ambulances to transport the suspects, who were tortured in detention, for specialised treatment.
But Mr Wadri is not allowed to go to Arua Municipality in the next three months unless cleared by court, according to Justice Mubiru.
Dozens of supporters were celebrating as the suspects went through the bail procedures before leaving court.
