Kampala- The Red Pepper Journalists have been released this afternoon on bail.
In the morning, the journalists appeared in court for their trial today but the absence of the trial Magistrate James Eremye Mawanda who is reportedly attending a workshop in Entebbe created uncertainty for their bail application to be heard.
But when the session resumed in the afternoon, Grade 1 Magistrate Kagoda Samuel, granted the Journalists bail.
The Red Pepper journalists have been in detention since last month with their publication premises closed down by the State.
Several journalists groups and Human Rights Activists have been calling for the release of the journalists. The Pepper has been out of market and the reporters across the country are finding difficulty financially especially this festive season where they have not been paid for months.
It has remained unclear as to when Publication would resume and whether the workers would get their payment.
