Resident District Commissioner of Jinja District, Sakwa Eric has been granted bail by Jinja court in a case connected to his involvement in manslaughter, robbery and malicious damage.
Mr. Sakwa’s bail has a condition of ensuring that he doesn’t speak to the media about the matter. The UPC turned NRM man is very vocal and Media hoses in Busoga have always fought for him to be hosted on their shows.
Sakwa was last Friday arrested and sent to Kirinya Prison by the same court on charges of manslaughter, robbery and malicious damage.
“In Jinja, the bail application hearing for Jinja RDC, Eric Joseph Sakwa (manslaughter, robbery and malicious damage charges) is ongoing before Chief Magistrate, Jessica Chemeri via ZOOM Conferencing Technology between Jinja Court and Kirinya Prison,” the Judiciary announced on its social media page Twitter.
Sakwa presented four sureties who include; Hon Nelson Lufafa, Hon Moses Walyomu, Jinja Mayor Majidu Batambuze and LC5 chairman Titus Kisambira.
