Edward Sebuufu alias Eddie Mutwe, the bodyguard of Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, has been charged with treason and remanded.

Mr Mutwe was on Tuesday arraigned before the Gulu grade one magistrate and charged alongside one Mr Musa Ssenyange, a driver and machine operator.

The state contends that the two and others used a grader to block President Yoweri Museveni’s convoy in Arua Municipality last month.

Grade one Magistrate Yunus Ndiwalana remanded them to Gulu Central prison until October 1 when they will appear in court along with 33 others who are already on remand on similar charges.

They were charged just hours after the High court in Kampala ordered their unconditional release because they were being held illegally following their arrest on August 25.

Justice Musa Ssekaana gave the order on Monday following the submission of Mr Mutwe’s lawyer, Eron Kiiza, who told court that his client had not been in detention without trial beyond the mandatory period as provided by law.
