Musician Kiwewa’s Lawyers to Petition Court for His Release

1 Mins read


Lawyers representing local Kadongo Kamu musician Gerald Kiwewa have vowed to petition High court once their client is not released.

Kiwewa was arrested last week on allegations of producing a song that disturbed the peace of Hon Aida Nantaba, the Kayunga woman MP.

Appearing at CID Headquarters where their client is said to be detained, on Monday, these said that it was unfair to continue keeping their client in custody after the elapse of 48 mandatory hours without producing him before the court.

The team of lawyers including Shamim Malende, Anthony Wameli, and Eria Nawembe was accompanied by Kiwewa’s family members who had come to meet their relative.

However, these were not accorded a chance to talk to h which annoyed them.

Addressing the press, Shamim Malende, one of the lawyers said that they have tried all possible means to access their client but in vain.

“We are only left with legal means and very soon we shall file a habeas corpus to compel the authorities to produce him in court.”

Mr. Kayongo, Kiwewa’s father expressed his dissatisfaction with the continued detention of his son when the person who was said to be a complainant distanced herself from this matter.

Charles Twine the spokesperson for CID said that investigations in the matter are complete and the file was sent to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for perusal.

Twine added that once the DPP finds the evidence enough, Kiwewa will be produced in court and in case she decides otherwise, he may be released
