 The Ugandan High Court has this afternoon granted cash bail to pop star-turned-politician Bobi Wine and 11 co-accused colleagues facing treason charges.

Justice Stephen Mubiru also granted bail to Arua Municipality MP-elect Kassiano Wadri, Jinja East MP Paul Mwiru, Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga and a host of other political activists.

Outside the courtroom, there were two stand-by ambulances  to transport the suspects who were tortured in detention to  hospital.

Legislator Kassiano Wadri is however not allowed to set foot in his Arua Municipality for the next three months unless cleared by court.

Dozens of the MPs supporters were seen outside court celebrating as the suspects went through bail procedures before leaving court.
