Amabilis said Turinawe was to be remanded back to Luzira on defaulf after granting the activist a cash bail of sh800,000.

The accused has presented substantial sureties whom prosecution did not even object to. She is hereby bonded sh800,000 cash and her three sureties, sh10m each, non-cash.

FDC president Patrick Oboi Amuriat. Rukungiri Municipality MP Roland Mugume and Olive Namazzi, the Kyambogo councillor stood surety for Turinawe.
