Who is behind Kasibante's trials? I get to imagine that it is not only the Parliament MP who is alleged to have taken Kasibante's victory that is the sole person behind the poor CBS 88.8 FM presenter's trying moments. One needs to have a strong and enduring heart to sail through what Kasibante is experiencing. Above he is with supporters after he was granted a cash bail of shs 2m.

Moses Kasibante, former Rubaga North parliamentary contender was denied bail and was remanded again to Luzira prisons. Kasibante was arrested from the High Court and later remanded to Luzira for jumping bail on cases of incitement to violence, rioting after proclamation, promoting sectarianism and malicious damage to property. Grade One magistrate, Susan Abinyo said she had received an application from the state prosecutor, Betty Agola asking court to deny Kasibante bail on grounds that he had jumped bail and ignored three criminal summon. Abinyo ruled against an objection by Kasibante’s lawyers and remanded him till April 25 when the bail application would be considered. Kasibante was represented by his lawyers, Asuman Basalirwa and Erias Lukwago who had lined up a number of sureties and submitted an application for bail. Lukwago said after the ruling that they still had an option to apply for a production warrant. Kasibante’s brothers, John Ddumba and Ali Ssekayi wept at the court as prisons officers prepared to take him back to Luzira. The police were deployed heavily around the court premises and blocked the road near the court to block supporters who gathered in big numbers. Angola also rejected pleas to produce him the next day saying she had a backlog of cases and could not make quick adjustments.
