The Chief Magistrate court yesterday directed the Police to arrest Moses Sekibogo alias Radio, and Douglas Mayanja alias Weasel over defamation.
The duo was given orders to appear before court to answer defamation allegations by music promoter Jeff Kiwanuka alias Jeff Kiwa.
They were expected to appear in court to take plea on Wednesday this week but in vain. Kiwanuka accuses the duo for defaming him through a video posted on their Facebook pages on June 3, 2016. Kiwanuka contends that the video creates an impression that he is a ritual murderer who was associated with the murder of six-year-old boy, Joel Ogema.
It was alleged that Were beheaded his young brother last month at Lusasira Village in Busia and was later arrestedfrom a friend’s place at Kajjansi in Wakiso.
Early this week, court was informed that the duo went to Kenya for a coke studio competition. However court ruling was based on failure by the duo’s legal team to bring evidence that shows that the duo were not in the country.
According to Kiwanuka, by the time the duo published the offensive video, they had full knowledge that he was not associated with criminal acts of murder, adding that they have no evidence to support their claims. This he said was done with intent to injure his name, reputation and business.
