Kampala – The High Court has, on Monday, June 6, reviewed and revised r. Kizza Besigye’s cash bail from Shs30 million to Shs3 million.

Reports indicate that High Court Judge Micheal Elubu has revised the cash bail after the opposition lynchpin decried foul play, leading to the ruling in his application challenging the Shs30 million cash bail.

Judge Elubu observed that the amount of UGX30m set by Buganda Road Court as bail for Besigye was harsh and excessive given the case at hand.

Dr Besigye was, on May 24, arrested in downtown Kampala for protesting against the high cost of living and escalating commodity prices and slapped with charges of incitement of violence.
