L-R Robert Mayanja, Nasur and Augustine Ojobile

Two leaders of the Jobless brotherhood were on Saturday arrested and detained after appearing on a political talk show on NBS Radio Station in Jinja dubbed “Endabirwamu”.

The arrest of Robert Mayanja and Augustine Ojobile has been confirmed by Jinja district Police boss ASP Felix Mujuzi.

Mujuzi told Chimpreports that his officers were prompted to act after learning that the youth were insulting several government officials including the Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga as well as inciting violence.

“Yes the two have been arrested and have been charged with inciting violence under file number SD REF 55/24/09/2016, stomach ” Mujuzi noted.

The talk show focused on the current developments in the country including the dumping of piglets at Parliament.

Mujuzi observed that the two will be detained until Monday when they will be produced before Court to answer charges levied against them.

Speaking to the Jobless Brotherhood National Coordinator, ampoule Norman Tumuhimbise, sick the arrest follows a number of threats that the group members have received ever since they dumped piglets at Parliament.

“The boys have been arrested with claims that they were insulting the person of the Speaker. It should be noted that no one has a person a part from the President and therefore everyone can be criticized at anytime,” Norman said.

“There is nothing like abusing the person of Kadaga. She is like any other Ugandan; we know this is just a move aimed at weakening and sabotaging our operations but we shall not give up.”

This comes just a day after the group’s members Ferdinand Luta and Joseph Lukwago who dumped the piglets at Parliament were released on bail by Buganda Road Court Grade 1 Magistrate, Marion Mageeni.
