In reaction to the Computer misuse law, The NUP Principle, Hon. Kyagulanyi Robert Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has warned Hon. Mohammad Nsereko to be careful because the law might bounce back on him.
This law was mooted into the parliament by the Kampala Central MP, Hon. Mohammad Nsereko on September 8th, 2022.

During the Media Conference on his return from Ukraine, Hon. Kyagulanyi stated that once Computer Misuse Act is passed and signed by the president, Hon. Mohammad will not be spared just like it will affect any ordinary Ugandan.

‘’ I’m telling you Hon. Nsereko , you will be the first victim of that stupid law ( Computer Misuse Act) you are bring to silence Ugandans,’’ said Bobi Wine.

At the time the law was tabled at the parliament, a number of MPs like Hon. Gorretta Namugga the Mawogola County Woman MP, attempted to fight the law but were over powered by the majority supporters of the law. Thess MPs warned that if this law is passed, one day it will make every Ugandan fall victim including those who campaign to pass it.

‘’If passed into law, it will stifle the acquisition of information; the penalties proposed in the bill are overly harsh and disproportionate when compared to similar offences in other legislations; the bill passed will be a bad law and liable to constitutional petitions upon assent,’’ said Ms Gorretta Namugga during the parliamentary debate on 8th September.

The Computer misuse Bill passed by the Parliament imposes tough penalties for cyber-crimes.
The amendment of the Bill, 2022 is sought to enhance the provisions on unauthorized access to information data; prohibits sharing of any of any information relating to a child without authorization of a parent or guardian; to prohibit the sending or sharing of the information that promotes hate speech among many other provisions.
