Blogger Isma Olaxess arrested again
Ugandan blogger Isma Olaxess has been arrested for the second time in a space of two months over careless utterances.
On Monday, the NRM blogger was interrogated and detained at Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Kibuli and will appear before court today on charges of inciting violence.
On November 17, 2021, the blogger took to his known Facebook page, “ Jajja Ichuli” to praise terrorists responsible for the twin bomb blasts in Kampala on November 16, urging them to commit more atrocities targeting Christian churches and inside Parliament next time.
Isma’s statements were a reaction to his alleged anger against police for always arresting Muslim suspects in cases of terror attacks in the country which is intended to tarnish the Islam religion.
Even though he came after to apologise for his careless statements, the Uganda Bloggers Association was forced to ask him to step down as their president.
Isma also had his brand ambassadorial contract with Home Connect Properties Uganda Limited terminated and now the authorities have come out to apprehend him for his statements.
Just two months ago, Isma was arrested together with Next Media presenters over alleged defamatory remarks against singer Omulangira Ssuuna on a live TV show.
