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.
