Two granted bail in parliament piglets case


Buganda Road Court Grade One magistrate Marion Mangeni has granted bail to two youth from the Jobless Brother hood, arrested last week for dropping piglets at Parliament.

Magistrate Mangeni ordered Luta Ferdinard and Joseph Lukwago to deposit at court sh 500,000 each before leaving prison custody.

Their four sureties  will  each sign a non cash bond of  sh 5million to ensure that the accused persons return to court for trial on the October 18, 2016.

The magistrate also warned that she will not hesitate to cancel their bail once they fail to maintain law and order.

Luta and Lukwago have spent a week on remand at Luzira Prison on charges of being a common nuisance and for cruelty and ill-treating domestic animals by painting them in color.

They have since denied the charges.

Security was beefed up around court to avoid a re-occurrence of a situation like last Friday, when an angry mob of Muslims believed to be supporters of Kampala Central MP Mohammad Nsereko besieged Buganda Road Court causing commotion while protesting the writing of the MPs name on one of the piglets.
