A UGANDAN COURT ISSUED AN ARREST WARRANT FOR KAKWENZA RUKIRABASHAIJA
A Ugandan court last week issued an arrest warrant for Kakwenza Rukirabashaija, an award-winning author who fled the country after being charged with insulting President Yoweri Museveni and his son, General Muhoozi Kinerugaba.
Kakwenza claims he was tortured during his month-long detention and slipped out of the country last month to seek treatment abroad for his injuries.
Prosecutors asked the court to issue a warrant of arrest against the satirical novelist after he failed to show up for the trial.
