The enraged driver from the judiciary Stanley Kisambira has been granted bail by the Buganda Road Chief magistrates Court this afternoon.
He was released on a Shs 10 Million non-cash and each of the 3 sureties secured a non-cash bond of 5 million shillings.
This comes after the production warrant to produce Kisambira at court today but was supposed to remain on remand in Luzira Prison until 2 June 2023
Kisambira presented his wife, Workmate and a nephew as sureties
His lawyers Stanley Okecho and Derrick Bazekuketta, asked the court presided over by Justice Glades Kamasanyu to grant his clients bail on grounds that he is still presumed innocent, he also told court that his client is law abiding citizen even at the time of his arrest he had gone to present himself at police over his bond requirement.
Kamasanyu ruled that Kisambira was fit to get bail and set 12th June 2023 for further hearing of the matter.
According to the prosecution, Kisambira made remarks suggesting that judges’ salaries were unfairly higher than those of the junior staff like drivers and that a driver could cause a road accident by ramming into a stationary truck, potentially resulting in the death of judges and their bodyguards although Kisambira denied the charges.
Lawyer Derrick Bazzeketta hailed the court for its independence saying at last justice has been seen to be done.
