However, his fellow comrades Mr David Lule alias Selector Davie, Mr Julius Katongole, Mr Nyanzi Fred Ssentamu and Mr Edward Sebuufu were present in court.

Mr Asuman Basalirwa who is Bobi Wine’s lawyer told Buganda Road Magistrate’s Court on Thursday that Mr Kyagulanyi was unable to appear in person because he is out of the country on official duties.

According to Basalirwa, Mr Patrick Nsamba Oshabe who is the area Member of Parliament for Kasanda South was present as a surety for Mr Kyagulanyi.
