Reports Samuel Ouga.

Pathologist Sylvester Onzinua has been released on Police bond. The Mulago Hospital Pathologist, Dr. Sylvester Onzinvua was released on Thursday afternoon after  spending 48 hours in Kireka at the special investigations Unit.

Police Spokesperson confirmed his release adding that he was supposed to be released after spending 48 hours in custody.  Another Police statement that has left many wondering under what law was used by who ever ordered that the Doctor be detained for 48 hours before being released even after being charged in Court yesterday.

Onzivua was arrested on Tuesday at Entebbe Airport while taking body samples of fallen Butaleja MP Cerinah Nebanda to South Africa for forensic investigations.His arrest sparked anger among most members of parliament some of whom camped at Kireka police offices where he was being held.

Police accused him of trying to smuggle body parts of a human to South Africa. But on Wednesday  he was charged with abuse of office and corruption,the charges parliament lawyers like Abdu Katuntu said were inconsistent with the accusations made at his arrest.
