General Kayihura formerly charged

By Sania Babirye and Robert Segawa
The former inspector General of police Kale Kaihura  has been formerly charged before the General court Martial.
Gen.Kaihura has been charged with three counts  of  failure to protect war materials and aiding and abetting kidnapping from Uganda and denied all the charges.
In the second count, Kaihura  is said to have failed to account for the guns given to his former office of the IGP that he issued to other units such as the Flying squad, witness protection unit and others
 He is also said to have aided his junior police officers to return 3 Rwandan exiles; Jackson Kalemeera, Joel Mutabaazi and Innocent Kaliisa to their country without their consent.
Prosecution led by Maj. Rapheal Mugisha has now asked court to adjourn the case to next month as inquiries into the case are still on-going.
Army court chair Lt.Gen.Andrew Gutti has however officially remanded Gen.Kaihura to Makindye military barracks until Tuesday the 28th of August to rule on his bail application.
 Earlier in his  lawyer  Peter Kabatsi had asked court to release his client on bail on grounds that his rights have been already violated since he  spent more than 2 months in Detention.
However Lt Gen. Gutti declined his submissions saying its by the Army court’s  law for anyone seeking bail to file a written formal bail application for consideration.
The court also declined pleas from Kaihura’s  senior lawyer Dr. Elison  Karuhanga that Kaihura  needs to go home and touch his wife and sleep on his bed after two months in detention.
