KAMPALA – Lillian Rukundo a Mass Communication student at Uganda Christian University (UCU), Mukono who was charged with producing and broadcasting a pornographic video has been admitted to Luzira Prison heath facility.

Rukundo 23, who was expected to appear today before Buganda Road Chief Magistrate under the Utilities and Wildlife Court, Ms Mary Babirye for the hearing of her case was reported to be very sick and unable to attend court.

Prison authorities have told court that Rukundo got an asthma attack and collapsed in the morning while boarding the prison bus.

Magistrate Babirye has now issued a production warrant to have Rukundo brought in court tomorrow for her bail application as per a letter from her lawyer.

She is jointly charged with renowned blogger Kato Ashiraf alias Ashburg Katto who has been released on a cash bail of Shs500,000.

On July 9, Rukundo had pleaded guilty to eight charges which included producing and broadcasting pornographic video contrary to section 13(1) and (2) of the Anti- Pornography Act 2014. However she charged her plea to not guilty.

Prosecution states that Rukundo in the year 2017 at Jordan Courts Hostel, Mukono district produced a video of herself masturbating while pushing her finger in and out of her vagina in a highly graphic, vivid, explicit and offensive/noxious manner intended to arouse the sexual feelings of whoever may happen to see it.

It is further stated that Rukundo paused for and took a picture of her naked self from the breasts down to the knees in a highly graphic, vivid, explicit and offensive/noxious manner intended to arouse the sexual feelings of whoever may happen to see it, to a friend on facebook account called Ian Lon.

Katto is facing charges of broadcasting Rukundo’s pornographic video on the social media.

Prosecution states that Katto on May 24, 2018 in Kampala in the Kampala district, broadcasted on the social media a picture of Rukundo depicting her naked self from the breasts down to the knees in a highly graphic, vivid, explicit and offensive/noxious manner intended to arouse the sexual feelings of whoever may happen to see it.

Last month a whistle blower tipped the Anti-pornographic committee that has just been inaugurated by the Ethics and Integrity minister Fr. Simon Lokodo.

According to the law, Rukundo and Katto are liable to a ten years imprisonment term or to be sentenced to pay a Court fine.
