Prosecution contends 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.

Presiding Chief Magistrate Ronald Kayizzi granted a seven-day period within which the state shall verify the sureties before adjourning the case to March 15.

Musana, who admitted his wrongdoings, 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.
