High Court has denied bail to Godfrey Busulwa the chairman of the Park Yard market, currently facing charges of embezzlement.
Busulwa is accused of embezzling 85 million shillings which was donated to the park yard vendors after the February fire.
Through his lawyer Alan Muhamad, Busulwa applied for bail on Wednesday on grounds that he is suffering from ulcers, an needs constant medication.
Paul Lokedi, the prosecutor however told court that Busulwa should not be granted bail because he would interfer with the investigations.
Paul Mugamba, the presiding judge concured with the state prosecutor and ruled that although Busulwa has a constitutional right to bail, it is improper for court to grant bail to a person whom prosecution believes would interfere with the investigations.
Busulwa had brought two sureties, Joseph Kyadondo, the Democratic Party chairman for Rubaga division, and Mukasa Ben, a businessman in Nakasero.
He was taken back to Luzira prison.
The park yard vendors who came to court vowed to lynch Kyadondo if he is found moving around the park yard.
Kyadondo is accused of fronting corrupt people and promoting and embezzelment.
Busulwa, Muhamad Musisi and two others were arrested in May this year, after the vendors become fed up of demanding for accountability for the money they received from well-wishers, banks, media houses and the general public, for the reconstruction of the market.
It's alleged that Busulwa after getting access to the money started dodging the vendors until they opened up a complaints file at the police.
The vendors arrested him along Nakivubo Muse, opposite the park yard market, and they handled him over to the police.
