Military presence at Parliament was requested by Kayihura – Muhoozi

CDF David Muhoozi takes oath in court on Tuesday.

The Chief of Defence Forces Gen. David Muhoozi has told the panel of five judges hearing the petition against the lifting of the presidential age limit that the army invaded parliamentary chambers  in order to restore its integrity.

Gen. Muhoozi on Tuesday was  appearing as the fourth witness for the State when he said on September 27, 2017, he was called by then Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura requesting for millitary  support at Parliament as he anticipated an emergency.

Muhoozi informed court that there is  permanent military  presence  at the President’s office near Parliament and that on the day in question,  the SFC officers were deployed on his command.

He added that the soldiers were dressed in non-military attire on instructions of Parliament’s Seargent at Arms.
