Besigye Ready to pin the state as key witness in Joseph Kabuleeta’s case


The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Supremo, Dr Kiiza Besigye has said he is ready to be a key witness for journalist-cum-pastor, Joseph Kabuleta who was arrested by state operatives on Friday afternoon.

The Watchman Ministries fisherman was picked by plain-clothed security operatives at Drew and Jacs Patisserie, Forest Mall Lugogo as he prepared for his weekly fellowship.

What followed was a social media outburst that prompted a communique from the Uganda Police Force’s spokesman, Fred Enanga admitting that Kabuleta had been arrested on grounds of Offensive Communication against the person of the president contrary to the Computer Misuse Act.

The former FDC President and four-time presidential candidate has pledged to appear in court as a principal witness to pin the state and stand surety for the Museveni critic.

“I am a ready witness for Joseph Kabuleta if his case comes to court. Let all other witnesses get ready,” Besigye wrote calling upon other interested parties in the case to rally up and turn up.

Kabuleta is still in police detention and it not yet known when he will be produced in Court.
