Uganda Young Democrats who were arrested at the US embassy in Nsambya where they had gone to campaign for US Republican candidate, Donald Trump, have been charged in court and released.
Makindye Grade One Magistrate Benson Ssemondo Thursday charged the two activists Moses Bigirwa and Allan Kitonsa under the Public Order Management Act.
They all denied the charges, presented two sureties in the presence of the state attorney, Timothy Amerit, and were released on a Shs500,000 cash bond.
Each of their sureties was charged Shs5m non-cash.
Prosecution alleges that the duo and others still at large on October, 25, 2016 at American Embassy in Kampala did not give notice in writing to the organizers or their agents to the authorized officers at the US Embassy about their intention to hold a public meeting at least three days before their meeting.
The case was adjourned to November 23, 2016 for hearing.
The youth support Donald Trump because he promised to get rid of all African dictators once he becomes president of the US.
