Police Confirm Holding Bobi Wine, Singer Faces Death Sentence Over Treason

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu faces a maximum sentence of death by hanging if police investigations determine that he was behind attacks on President Museveni last evening in Arua.

Police have confirmed that Kyagulanyi together with his candidate of choice in the Arua by-election are in their custody. Police spokesman Emilian Kayima however said investigations are still ongoing to determine appropriate charges.

“It is a criminal act to attack the presidential convoy as it is provided for in the traffic act,” Kayima said in a statement seen by this website.

The law Section 23 of the Penal Code Act (PCA) states that a person commits treason when he/she levies war against Uganda; unlawfully causes or attempts to cause the death of the President or maim or disfigure him/her or aims at the person of the President any gun or offensive weapon whether it contains any explosive or destructive substance or not; (c) contrives any plot or act and expresses or declares such plot, act by any utterance or by any overt act in order, by force of arms, to overturn the government….

The same Act provides that once convicted of treason, one is liable to suffer death by hanging.
