The military court sitting in Makindye barracks has sent Boda Boda 2010 leader Abdullah Kitata back on remand until May 21, 2018.

This came after the state prosecutor Capt Ambrose Baguma contested Mr Kitata’s bail application,  arguing that Kitata had failed to produce substantial sureties.

Capt  Baguma  presented before  court an affidavit sworn by one of the CMI investigators  Maj. Dennis Katambuka stating that there are high  chances that  Kitata will interfere  with witnesses once released on bail since their particulars are already known to him.

Maj. Katambuka also stated that Kitata’s biological father Hajji Muhammad Nabugoba, who was one of the sureties presented could not tell how old his son is.

Maj. Katambuka  told court in his affidavit  that Kitata may fail to turn up in court for trial yet he is charged with grave offenses.

The Court’s chairman Lt.Gen. Andrew Gutti said he will rule on this  matter on the May 7, 2018.

Kitata applied  to be temporarily released from prison  where he has been booked since February on grounds that he has a health condition  which can not be adequately treated while he is on remand at Makindye police Millitary barracks.

Kitata   faces  5   counts of being in unlawful possession of an SMG gun, 3 pistols  and 50 rounds of live ammunition.According to   Prosecution the above items   are   a monoploy of the UPDF.
