KAMPALA – Former police Chief Gen. Kale Kayihura has today reported back before the General Court Martial in fulfillment of his bail terms.
Gen. Kayihura was ordered to report before the Court Martial registry every first Monday of the month else he risked cancellation of the bail he was granted in August last year after spending several months in Military detention at Makindye.
Kayihura arrived at the court-martial at about 10 am in a Ministry of Defence vehicle with an escort car. He, however, used the rare entrance to the court while avoiding journalist and headed straight to the chairman’s office who is supposed to endorse on his bail form.
A journalist who managed to steal one was forcefully ordered to delete it.
Consequently the Court’s chairman Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti has extended his bail to the February 4 as the case is not yet cause listed for trial because Investigations are still on-going.
Gen Kayihura, who is out on bail, was in August charged on two counts of failure to protect war materials and aiding kidnap and illegal repatriation of Rwandan nationals and Ugandan citizens from Uganda between 2012 and 2016.
Gen Kayihura is accused of failing to protect war materials by issuing arms to unauthorised persons including Boda Boda 2010 members led by jailed Abdallah Kitatta between 2010 and 2018.
Mr Kitatta is on remand in military prison with 9 others on charges of unlawful possession of firearms.
