The principal judge in the courts of judicature Bamwine Yorokamu has communicated an order through the Mbarara resident judge Zaija Flavian that all debtors at Bushenyi( Nyamushekyera) government prisons should be released.
Atleast 20 debtors are already at court waiting to be released.
Bamwine stressed that it is better to release debtors so that they can go and look for money to pay back. He added that keeping them in custody will not be a solution moreover they are putting more expenses on the complainants.
Managers of different financial institutions have stormed Bushenyi court to inquiry from the authorities how they expect them to get back their money.
Joseph Bahame head of loans at KYAPS says this will tarnish their relationship with their customers. He wondered how customers will react when they are told that their money they kept with institutions is not in store at a time they need it.
Do you want our banks to collapse? noted Peter Tumuhimbise manager Buturo sacco.
Meanwhile, police officers in charge of operations have intervened to calm the situation and have advised the managers to write to the principal judge through justice Zaija.
