Jailed comedians Bizonto will be checked for mental illnesses, this is according to Police CID spokesperson, Charles Twiine.
The talented actors were arrested last week in what police has termed as sectarianism and spread if harmful propaganda.
A parody-style skit of the crew recently went viral on different social media platforms. The four comedians who acted in it, dressed in church choir gowns, were picked by police from Radio Simba in Bukoto.
The comedians say they intended to teach children, now stuck at home because schools are shut down, about the people who occupy strategic positions in the country.
They listed President Museveni, Chief of Defence Forces Gen David Muhoozi, and Lt Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba, the senior presidential advisor on special operations.
The others they listed are: Bank of UgandaGovernor Tumusiime Mutebile, Ministry of Finance Permanent Secretary Keith Muhakanizi, Commissioner General of Prisons Dr Johnson Byabashaija, Minister of Security Gen Elly Tumwine, Internal Security Organisation boss Col Bagyenda Kaka, Chief of Military Intelligence Maj Gen Abel Kandiho, commander of the Special Forces Command Maj Gen James Birungi, and the Electoral Commission chairperson, Mr Simon Byabakama.
When it came to the police force, the comedians pointed out its head, Mr Martins Okoth-Ochola, but were quick to add that Maj Gen Sabiiti Muzeeyi, the deputy Inspector General of Police, is very influential in decision making within the Force.
They then added Gen Muzeeyi’s name to the earlier 11 to make 12 individuals. They urged their fans to teach their children who is who in the country, further urging them to pray for Uganda’s leaders.
Now according to Twiine, the four will be mentally checked before being produced in court.
