Bobi Wine bodyguard, Eddy Mutwe charged with treason in Gulu

Ochen said the order was meant to prevent the detention of the suspects in illegal facilities. He said bringing the suspects in court would prevent further illegal detention when they are remanded to a prison facility. Magistrate Ndiwalana then advised the suspects to apply for bail in the High court and remanded them to Gulu Central Prison until October 1.

Personal bodyguard of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, Edward Ssebuufu, commonly known as Eddy Mutwe has been charged with treason.

State prosecutor, Julius Ochen told court that the duo is part of the 33 suspects who were charged  with treason on allegations of throwing stones at President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy and smashing the rear window.

 “As officers of court we respect this decision, we may not agree with it. We intend to pursue the bigger remedy that this client, just like the previous 33 are entitled. So right now, we’re getting down to work on papers for the bail applications and hopefully before the end of the week or whatever time next we’ll have him produced for his bail application so that they are released.” Tony Kitara and Ocaya Acellam, Eddy Mutwe’s lawyers stated.

Ssebuufu, 37, was allegedly picked up by state operatives from Semakokiro Plaza in Kamwokya on August 25, some days after the arrest of his boss Kyagulanyi on August 14.
