Former minister Abdul Naduuli’s son, Sulaiman Jakana Nadduli is dead, family members announced this Monday morning. Jakana who contested for Nakaseke central MP seat in 2021 elections was last month released on bail, days after he was arrested on charges of promoting sectarianism.
Jakana Nadduli Sulaiman contestes in last year’s election, but failed to take Nakaseke Central MP seat.
He was arrested and charged with promoting sectarianism contrary to Section 41 of the Penal Code Act before recently being released on bail.
Suleiman Jakana Nadduli was on 12th September arraigned before court and charged with promoting sectarianism.
The police spokesperson explained that the remand followed the plea of guilty by Nadduli’s son to the charges read against him in the court.
“He pleaded guilty that it is true he was promoting acts of sectarianism in his communication. He will return to court for sentencing on September, 13.”
The Police spokesperson however didn’t explain more about the sectarian utterances that Nadduli’s son is accused of having made but warned members of the public against being indicted over similar charges.
Nadduli’s son lost out in the 2021 general elections where he stood for Nakaseke Central MP position on the independent ticket.
He had earlier lost the ruling party ticket to former Energy Minister, Syda Bbumba.
Jakana has since blamed some top NRM officials of being behind his loss, accusing them of favouritism.
Since the polls, Nadduli’s son has scoffed at the ruling party and its chairman, President Yoweri Museveni of “veering off the track ” that brought the NRM to government.
