BY: Eyalama In News On

The Judiciary has started investigations into circumstances under which the Kapchorwa Chief Magistrate was arrested and detained by the police after a bar brawl in Moroto.

In an incident that happened over the weekend, Teko Lokeris was involved in a brawl with his cousins while at a bar in a hotel in Moroto municipality and in the ensuing scuffle, he drew a gun at his relatives, prompting security to intervene and arrested him.

In a statement released by the Judiciary, the Chief Registrar has tasked the Inspectorate of Courts to investigate the incident.

“As an independent, competent and accountable arm of government that is mandated to administer justice to all, we are closely following up the matter with Moroto Police so that thorough investigations are carried out into the alleged September 11 incident at Mount Moroto Hotel,” the Judiciary said in a statement.
