Michael Kabaziguruka (R), MP for the Nakawa Division has been charged over his alleged links to a rebel group

Forum for Democratic Change’s Nakawa MP Michael Kabaziguruka, in and out of police custody, has been charged in an army court with offenses relating to security and treachery.

He was on Tuesday morning produced before new Makindye based General Court Martial Chairman Lt Gen Andrew Gutti on charges of treason.

At the beginning of June Mr Kabaziguruka was arrested from his home and taken to Special Investigations Unit at Kireka for interrogation over alleged subversion, but was released on police bond. However, at the time he said he was still under security surveillance as police maintained presence at his home.

Kabaziguruka has been accused with ‘others at large’ of plotting to assassinate the President. As a result, the UPC mobiliser for northern Uganda, Dan Oola Odiya, is in custody on charges of treason and attempts to subvert the government of Uganda. Also, an Air force Garrison Commander, Colonel Dan Opito Odwee, is in custody. Col Odwee, like 30 other soldiers, are linked to alleged subversive activities.

“Kabaziguruka is helping police with investigations in the same matter and I am sure all the others are helping with investigations. That’s the status,” the Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura said recently.

Kabaziguruka’s close friend and political confidant Dr Besigye, who is indicted for also treason, is currently on remand at Luzira prison.
