The Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s Court has dismissed fraud and possession of narcotic drug charges against motivational Speaker also social entrepreneur Frank Gashumba.
Gashumba was arrested in 2017 by military police and detained for days after being accused among others of forgery, possession of narcotic drugs and impersonation.
He was arrested with his brother Innocent Kasumba and his friend Ismail Kiyingi.
On Thursday, Grade One Magistrate, Stella Amabilis dismissed the case after the state failed to produce a single witness to testify in the matter since 2017.
“This case is hereby dismissed for want of prosecution and the accused is accordingly discharged,” Amabilis ruled.
This was the 23rd time Gashumba and his two co-accused appeared in court.
Following the development, Gashumba went to his Facebook page to warn his perpetrators who had him arrested that the battle has just started.
“To you all my friends and confidants, I am going to inform you my next course of action. We shall not allow these vampires and cackle, attached to public institutions, using state resources to maliciously tarnish and embarrass innocent Ugandans,” he said.
