A 34-year-old woman, Fatuma Nansubuga has been remanded to Luzira prison on charges of common nuisance.

Nansubuga a resident of Kalerwe market, Kawempe Division was arrested two days ago after staging a lone protest outside parliament. On Thursday she was arraigned before grade one magistrate Caroline Kyoshabire.

Buganda Road Magistrate's court heard that Nansubuga on July 2 at Kampala Central in Kampala district was seen walking while carrying placards demanding the resignation of the speaker of parliament Annet Anita Among.

According to the prosecution, the placards bore words indicating that Uganda must be free from corruption which they say inconvenienced the public in the exercise of their common rights by blocking their walkway thereby concluded to be a common nuisance.

The prosecution informed court that investigations in this case are complete and asked for a hearing date. However, Nansubuga denied the charges against her and through her lawyer Swaibu Kitakule applied to be released temporarily on bail. Magistrate Kyoshabire advised Nansubuga's lawyer to apply for bail at the next sitting.

Consequently, Nansubuga who has been at Kampala Central police station for two nights was sent to Luzira Prison until July 9. Nansubuga is not the only person who has appeared in court in the recent past over cases arising from the alleged condemnation of corruption reportedly perpetuated by speaker Among.

On Wednesday this week, the former Rubaga Division RCC Herbert Anderson Burora was sent to Luzira Prison by the same court on charges of hate speech and spreading malicious information, shortly after he had been suspended from office on allegations of having continued to issue or utter statements to the social media without express authority from his line supervisors.

Burora had criticized Among over corruption on X. A few months ago, a Tiktoker Ibrahim Musana commonly known as Pressure 24/7 was remanded for about two months for promoting hate speech against Among, President Museveni and Kabaka of Buganda before he secured his freedom.

If somebody branded me a thief, I have 2 things to do,
1)- to stop behaving like, one, bcoz just mentioning doesn't make to be.

2)- it will be upon me to prove that what people see ss stealing is actually taking , or enjoying, orwhatever you will call it.

Ugandans must come out like this young hero called Fatuma , and express zero tolerance to the stupidity and theft that are killing this country and its people!

Whoever is stealing tax payer's money, loan money and harassing innocent and destitute Ugandans, is simply forgetting that natural justice is very brutal and is always fully paid by the perpetrators and their children and grand children...

But Jose, from now on, should your neighbors/Ugandans begin coming to your house anytime of the day and night, and start "taking or enjoying" whatever they can get their hands; and each time, you would be saying:

Praise God! they are taking my things without my permission, bless them oh God Amen?
