Buganda Road Chief Magistrate Gladys Kamasanyu was on Saturday admitted to hospital after he was attacked by unknown people.

According to the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, Kamasanyu was attacked outside Green Hill Academy in Namuwongo at 11.00am. She was later admitted at International Hospital Kampala (IHK) in Namuwongo.

“She parked her car and later crossed the road to go to the school. As she was heading out, three men who were on motorcycles and had been allegedly trailing her waited for her kicked Kamasanyu and she fell on the ground.

Judiciary Spokesperson Jamson Karemani stated that Kamasanyu was attacked while going to pick her child’s PLE result slip and she is steadily improving at International Hospital Kampala.

The thugs, Owoyesigyire says, stole her property which includes a phone and her bag.

Owoyesigyire said investigations into the matter have since commenced.

This is not the first time Kamasanyu is being attacked. In 2019, she was attacked by the supporters of Dr Stella Nyanzi in court and hit with a bottle after she found Nyanzi guilty of offensive communication, the sentence which was later overturned by the High Court.

Kamasanyu also being the head of the only Specialized Wildlife Court in Africa has presided over several cases involving suspects charged with offences related to illegal possession of wildlife species.
