A politician’s romantic daughter and her boyfriend who were detained after being linked to terrorism have been released without charge.
Erisiana Sabiri, 24, daughter of North Mugirango MP Charles Mong’are and her boyfriend Ahmed Salim were detained on the behest of the politician as punishment for eloping without his blessings!
Sabiri has sensationally claimed her father colluded with police to frame her to frustrate her relationship.
“There is no issue of terrorism here…. It is just an issue of parenting, I have decided to release the two respondents to their parents,” city magistrate Martha Mutuko ruled.
Sabiri was taken to the ATPU offices from where her father has been ordered to pick her.
Unreachable on phone
The Mp had been summoned to court but he snubbed the invite with an investigating officer indicating that he was unreachable on phone.
After their release youthful Salim said: “We are happy. We have been in remand since Thursday but this will not stop our love. We are in love and we have told court the same.”
“I will go home and take a hot shower and probably take her out to watch a movie. But I am afraid that once Sabiri is picked by her father, he will try to detain her….” the youth said.
Break up with Sabiri
Salim said the MP tried forcing him to break up with Sabiri as a condition for dropping the charges but his lover did not agree.
The magistrate, who had a private session with the lovebirds, said she wished the matter to be treated as a private affair.
“The court has a responsibility to protect the rights of subjects…” she explained.
Report to ATPU
Sabiri and Salim will report to the ATPU once a week for the next month and may not travel out of the country until investigations are complete.
The case will be mentioned on June 21 2017.
