The American Embassy in Kampala has warned that there will be consequences for those undermining democracy.
The Embassy posted the warning on their social media platforms shortly after Court granted lawyer Nicholas Opiyo bail.
Opiyo was granted cash bail of Shs15 million with each of his sureties tasked with a non-cash obligation of Shs100 million.
In her ruling for the bail application, Buganda Road Court magistrate Jane Okuo Kajuga said that it is was improper for the court to deny Opiyo his right to bail.
The warning comes at the time when there allegations of state harassment and torture of opposition candidates and their supporters in the ongoing political campaigns. However, government denies the allegations saying those allegation harassment and torture are breaking #Covid-19 SOPs that were put in place by Ministry of Health in conjunction with the Electoral Commission that is overseeing the campaigns.
