Christopher Aine Pleads Guilty to Offence of Obstruction of Police

Christopher Aine who hit the streets recently and blocked traffic as a way of protesting against unemployment has pleaded guilty to the offence of obstructing traffic officers from doing their job.

Aine rose to prominence while working as Amama Mbabazi aide in 2016.

Aine was arrested to quell his protest. He was in the company of Daniel Byansi, Ken Serunjogi, Sam Lugemwa, Christopher Nyombi and Tonny Segawa who are all facing charges in court.

Whereas Aine pleaded guilty, his colleagues denied the charges.

Aine however denied charges of malicious damage to property, assault, causing bodily harm and going to public armed.

Prosecution says that Aine damaged the shirt of a traffic officer, on top of stopping the officer and others from doing their statutory duty.

Aine it is alleged had a knife in hand and threatened to cause harm.

Offenses put against Aine and his colleagues elicits more than a year in jail. 

Aine will appear again in court before Buganda Road court where Senior Grade One Magistrate Stella Amabilis will decide their fate.
