Kabaziguruka case adjourned

The General Court Martial at Makindye  has set the 8th/November 2016  to commence the  hearing of a treachery case against the Jailed  Nakawa Municipality MP  Michael Kabaziguruka.

This after the Amy court lead prosecutor Maj. Raphael Mugisha informed the 7 member court chaired  by Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti that invetigations  are complete and he is ready to summon witnesses to testify against the accused.

Kabaziģuruka together with 25 other people including 22 UPDF officers are said to have contrived a plot to overthrow the gvt of Uganda by use of fire arms,  an offence the prosecution says was committed between  February and June this year in the districts of Kampala,  Wakiso and Luweero .

These are currently held on remand at Kigo gvt prison and Makindye Millitary police barracks respectively.

However Kabaziģuruka has  since challenged this trial in the Court of Appeal and  refused to  plead to the charges on grounds that he is not a millitary officer to be tried by the Millitary court.

The youthful MP also moved to apply for bail before the Highcourt -Criminal division saying the General Court Martial does not grant bail to civilian suspects who appear before it.

His bail application  to be temporariry released from Kigo prison will come up for hearing on Thursday this week before Justice Yasin Nyanzi.
