The embattled Henry Kisambira a Judiciary driver who allegedly claimed little pay has been granted bail on Thursday, May 25, 2023 after three days of detention at Luzira prison.

While appearing before the Buganda road Chief Magistrate, Gladys Kamasanyu who read him the charges, Kisambira pleaded not guilty to the charges and applied to be released on bail.

In response, HW Kamasanyu granted him 10 million non-cash bail after syncretising his steps of bail justification.

According to the Magistrate’s ruling, Kisambira’s sureties were each bonded at 5 million non-cash as Kisambira was ordered to return to court on June 12, 2023.

This comes after Kisambira was remanded to Luzira prison over promoting hate speech against the judiciary.

However, before his arrest, it’s alleged that he circulated audios on different social media platforms mostly on WhatsApp claiming that his salary was not enhanced regardless of the long period he worked for the judiciary institution.

In the viral audio, Kisambira who claimed that he was being exploited by the judiciary since he was earning 200,000 shillings, revealed that such a situation can cause any one in his position to intend to cause an accident which can result into loss of lives.

“I am a driver. I can ram into a stationery trailer, killing all occupants, including the judge and bodyguard,” Kisambira who has been with a judiciary for 15 years said in the audio clip.

However the judiciary has since distanced self from Kisambira’s allegations, revealing that its driver earns over 2million shillings including allowances.

“This driver lied. He receives Shs200, 000 as operation funds, he gets a salary of Shs237, 000 and also receives a consolidated allowance of Shs720, 000 every three months. Shs1.125m is given to him every quarter as consolidated welfare money. This means that in total, Kisambira gets around Shs1.35 million but then he goes around telling lies,” PS Pius Bigirimana said on May 19, 2023.
