The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mike Chibita has withdrawn murder charges he had sanctioned against youth empowerment activist Bryan Kirumira aka Bryan White.
Bryan White last year charged along with his guard Thomas Okota for shooting and injuring Victor Bitwire, a resident of Munyonyo.
He was arrested at Kabalagala police and later transferred to Nalufenya detention facility and on December 13, 2017, Bryan White was remanded to Luzira.
He was today set free and handed back his passport. Bryan White and the accused reached an understanding and settled the matter out of court. Addressing the Press outside court premises, Bryan White said he was happy that the matter is finally solved. He promised to resume his activities of awakening youths from poverty soon.
Dated April 9th, the withdrawal form indicated that the DPP has officially written to court informing them that he has lost interest in the case.
“This is to inform court that the Director of Public Prosecutions has decided to discontinue proceedings against Kirumira Bryan and Okoth Thomas who had been charged with attempted murder,” says in part, the withdrawal form signed by Mike Chibita copied to the Resident State Attorney for Makindye and the Kampala South regional CID.
Chief Magistrate Elias Kakooza accepted the request by the DPP and closed the file.
“Be ready to fight alone, Trust in God, Build up an Energy that can make you win the fight alone. For me, the support from good hearted People is a Bonus to me.
Fresh and Clean. Free At Last. For God and My Country. 2018 Must Obey #BryanWhiteFOUNDATION,” Bryan posted after the case file was closed.
