Comedian Swengere, Singer Kiweewa Out On Police Bond

By Elite News Reporter

Renowned singer Gerald Kiweewa, who was arrested last week over allegations of disturbing the peace of Kayunga Woman Member of Parliament Aidah Elios Nantaba, was Tuesday afternoon freed from the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) in Kireka, where he had been detained since his arrest on Thursday.

Kiweewa was granted police bond after the police confirmed that there was no complainant in his case and that MP Nantaba had not lodged any complaints about the singer disturbing her peace.

His arrest came after he released a song titled ‘Nantaba’, which police detectives construed as  disturbing the quiet peace of Hon. Nantaba and inciting violence.
