Kampala, (UG):- Self-styled TikToker, Ibrahim Musana who was last week arrested for allegedly abusing the Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Mutebi and President Museveni has been remanded to Luzira Prison until March 7th 2024.

Musana, 27, known by his alias Pressure24/7 on TikTok Friday appeared before the Buganda Road Chief Magistrate, Mr Ronald Kayizzi who read the charges of promoting hate speech and spreading malicious information against him.

State prosecution led by Ms Joan Keko told court that between August 2023 and February 2024 in areas of Kampala District, while using a computer via his Tik-Tok account identified as Pressure 24/7, Musana shared information which is likely to degrade or demean and promote hostility against four leaders including Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, Speaker of Parliament Annet Anita Among and State Minister for Information Communication Technology Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo.

Court documents indicate that several people lodged complaints against Musana including Jennifer Nakanguubi alias Full Figure.

Musana, however, amused the court when he apologized and promised never to attack leaders and to delete all the hate-speech content on his TikTok account.

“I was not aware that by posting such videos, I was committing an offence. I am psychologically challenged having been admitted to Butabika mental hospital sometime back,” he pleaded to the court as he begged to be forgiven.

Amusingly, Musana said that he is being ‘disturbed’ by Buganda Kingdom’s deceased kings who purportedly told him to repair their tombs but is financially constrained.

The TikToker was arrested last weekend after a complaint was formally filed by Buganda Kingdom at the CID Headquarters – Kibuli over Musana’s misuse of social media, malicious information, and hate speech, against the Kabaka of Buganda, the Katikkiro, and the people who religiously pay allegiance to the Kabaka of Buganda.
