MP Nsereko granted bail

Kampala Central MP Mohamed Nsereko has been granted bail.

Tororo Chief Magistrate Charles Emuriat set him free on grounds that it was his constitutional right.

He was ordered to pay Shs 500,000 cash and his sureties have been asked to execute bonds worth 5 million shillings not cash.

MPs Nathan Nandala Mafaabi, Mariam Nalubega, Godfrey Kiwanda, and Haruna Kasolo stood surety for him.

It’s alleged that on 23/Dec/2012 at Butalejja, Nsereko uttered statements that were intended to incite violence.

He first appeared in court on Friday but was remanded to allow the state amend the charge sheet after objections raised by defense lawyers.

The said statements were allegedly made during the burial ceremony of the late MP Cerinah Nebanda.
