Following the latest news about her fellow Journalist and mentor Mr. Simon Mwanga Lutaya who was asked to pay the court fine of UGX 153 million for losing a court petition to the NRM Candidate claiming that the elections were not free and fair, Journalist Remmy Bahati has started an online campaign to raise money for her mentor and friend and save him from jail.

She posted:

The host of the ‘One on one with Tamale Mirundi’ on NBS TV Simon Muyanga failed to appear in court on Wednesday 17th January to explain why he failed to pay the court fine which prompted Jinja High Court deputy registrar, Mr Jesse Byaruhanga to issue an arrest warrant.

According to the warrant of arrest, Muyanga is to be arrested, sent to Kirinya prison or Nalufenya and his property sold off to recover the money.

We hopefully think all will go well with the presenter and the media fraternity at large.
