Tiktoker “Pressure” remanded back to jail as prosecution stalls

The Chief Magistrate’s Court of Buganda Road in Kampala, on Thursday granted more time to the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to finalize their inquiries into the allegations against Ibrahim Musana, a TikTok user known as Pressure 24/7.

Ibrahim Musana is a TikTok user better known as Pressure 24/7.

The case accuses Musana of making derogatory comments about various prominent Ugandan leaders, including Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi of Buganda and President Yoweri Museveni.

The request for an extension was put forward by the prosecution, led by Mr. Ivan Kyazze, during the proceedings presided over by Chief Magistrate Ronald Kayiizi.

Kyazze stated that the investigative team was nearing the completion of its inquiry but required a bit more time to thoroughly conclude the investigations.

In response, Magistrate Kayiizi adjourned the case until April 29, expressing his expectation that the state would by then have wrapped up its investigative efforts.

The allegations against Musana stem from activities conducted between August 2023 and February 2024, within Kampala District.

According to the prosecution, Musana, utilizing his TikTok account identified as Pressure 24/7, uploaded content that was potentially harmful and disrespectful.

The state argues that his posts were likely to incite degradation, demean, and promote hostility towards four key figures: Kabaka Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, President Museveni, the Speaker of Parliament Annet Anita Among, and the State Minister for Information Communication Technology, Joyce Nabbosa Ssebugwawo.

Pressure was as such remanded back to Luzira until April 29.
