The artist is said to have produced a song which annoyed the President
Mr David Mugema 31, and his music producer Jonah Muwanguzi 23, appeared before Buganda Road Court and were charged with uttering offensive communication against Mr Museveni.
“It is very unfortunate that people were brought to court when it is not constituted, but charges have to be read to them so that they know why they have been brought to court,” the presiding Grade One Magistrate Ms Gladys Kamasanyu read the charges to the accused. The two however denied the charges.
The prosecution alleges that the two repeatedly composed, recorded, produced and distributed a song titled "Wumula" which supposedly "attacked and disturbed the peace of President Museveni" without a legitimate reason.
It is further alleged that Muwanguzi aided Mugema in producing the said song which annoyed the President.
The offence was allegedly committed between 2015 and 2017 at Salama Road in Makindye, Kampala.
Their lawyer Abdullah Kiwanuka applied for bail but the magistrate said she would handle the application on Wednesday.
She cited the absence of a prosecutor from the Uganda Communications commission for the postponement.
