Kyanja Resident Remanded on Cyber Harassment Charges Linked to Facebook Posting

Cox Kibedi, a 48-year-old individual residing on Kyanja Ring Road, has been remanded at Luzira until February 2, 2024, facing three counts of cyber harassment. The charges stem from an alleged act of sharing an explicit video link on Facebook, targeting Agaba Rebecca. This led to Kibedi appearing before Buganda Road Chief Magistrate Samuel Kayiizi.

During the court proceedings, Kibedi contested the charges, arguing that Facebook operates beyond Uganda’s jurisdiction, rendering the accusations baseless. Despite his denial, the magistrate ordered his remand pending further investigations.

This incident is not the first involving Kibedi, as records indicate a history of inappropriate behavior towards women dating back to 2021. He is accused of persistently harassing and verbally abusing women who reject his advances, often resorting to offensive language. Accusations include labeling them as such.
