Anthony Agaba alias Bobi Young, the bodyguard of National Unity Platform (NUP) president Robert Kyagulanyi, who is battling charges of spreading harmful propaganda, has sought bail.
Through his lawyer Benjamin Katana, Bobi Young, 29, Monday (April 24, 2023) applied for bail before the General Court Martial (GCM) chaired by Brig. Gen Freeman Mugabe.
In his bail application, the accused arraigned two sureties namely, Judith Birungi, his elder sister and Brenda Nakasaga, his wife.
“We pray that court finds the sureties substantial and grants the applicant bail on lenient terms. He is a family man with a wife, children and he is their only sole breadwinner,” Katana submitted.
The defence further told court that the applicant has been in lawful custody since January this year and that he has never been convicted by any court on the land, therefore, describing him as a law-abiding citizen who will not skip bail.
Responding to the bail application, prosecutors Lt. Col Raphael Mugisha and Lt Alex Mukhana requested court for a week to enable them to respond appropriately.
The GCM chairman Gen Mugabe adjourned the case to May 3, 2023, for the state to respond to the applicant’s bail application.
