Ruhinda County MP Rtd. Capt. Donozio Kahonda was on Wednesday treated to a rousing welcome by thousands of his supporters in Mitooma District following his release on bail by court.
Kahonda, who was in June imprisoned over forgery and uttering false documents, was on Tuesday, granted bail the Luweero Chief Magistrates Court.
And on Wednesday, his supporters, some travelling more than 30 kms, converged in Bushenyi-Ishaka Municipality and escorted him to his home in Kabira Sub county in Mitooma.
Mr Kahonda hailed his constituents and the Speaker of Parliament for standing with him when he was in prison. He also thanked fellow MPs who have stood with him to see justice that prevails.
Since his incarceration, Capt Kahonda’s have stood him. Last month, they camped at State House in Entebbe, asking President Museveni to rein on Justice Minister Kahinda Otafiire whom they accused of allegedly using his office to harass their MP.
Kahonda defeated Kahinda in the 2016 parliamentary polls.
However, Gen Otafiire recently rubbished allegations that he is behind the imprisonment of Kahonda.
