Court orders for unconditional release of Novelist, Kakwenza Rukirabasaija


The Makindye Grade One Magistrate, Irene Nambatya, has ordered the unconditional release of embattled Novelist Kakwenza Rukirabasaija, who has been in detention on accusations of using offensive communication via his Twitter account.

Nambatya ruled that Kakwenza had been in detention for more than 48 hours without appearing before the court, which violates his rights.
