Prosecution told court that the father of the pupil pleaded with Kanaabi and Kazibwe but all fell on the deaf ear until 7th Nov.2018 when the press broke a story on the arrest of the pupil which forced the school to drop the kid at the fathers home in Nsangi Wakiso district
Appearing before Mwanga Two grade one magistrate Sarah Tusime the two accused denied the charges.
They were later given bond after presenting three sureties each.
The two were arrested after the office of the DPP directed that they be charged saying there is enough evidence to charge them for illegal detention.
