Next Media Journalists, Makuliiro William, Wakko Brian and Kawalya Isaac Kayz have been granted a noncash bail of UGX 10M.
The trio who were charged and remanded to Kitalya Maximum Security Prison have today Wednesday evening appeared before the Buganda Road Magistrates Court for hearing of their bail application.
The three media personalities who host popular gossip shows on both Sanyuka TV and NBS TV did not appear in person at the court but rather, were projected to the courtroom via Zoom.
The trio is charged with offensive communication and criminal libel against singer Omulangira Ssuna together with blogger Isma Olaxess who appeared before court yesterday and had his 10 million non-cash bail application granted.
Multi-talented musician OS-Omulangira Suuna accuses the group of defaming him through their TV shows as he said they claimed he practices witchcraft, sleeps with very old women, and also has bad luck.
OS says he will stop at nothing not until the accused retract their utterances and publicly apologize to him.
With shoulders drooping and eyes downcast, Kayz was no longer the loud, unapologetic and confident man in the studio who appeared humble and hopeless with his hands held firmly, probably worried about spending another cold night behind the bars but luckily that was not the case.
