The embattled patron the of Boda Boda 2010, Abdallah Kitatta has this morning appeared before the General Court Martial (GCM) in Makindye, where he is expected to be charged with cases related to illegal possession of fire arms among others.
Clad in a yellow t-shirt and navy grey pair of trousers, Kitatta and his co-accused were escorted into court by military police personnel. Other suspects charged with Kitatta are Sowali Ngobi, Amon Twinomujuni, Joel Kibirige, Matia Ssenfuka, Hassan Ssebata, Johnson Kayondo, Hassan Ssengoba, Sunday Ssemogerere, John Ssebandeke, Hussein Mugema, Fred Bwanika and Ibrahim Ssekaja.
On Friday last week, the Unit Disciplinary Court (UDC) at the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) at Mbuya chaired by Colonel Tom Kabuye committed Kitatta and his co-accused to the GCM for trial, after the UDC chairman ruled that his court does not have the jurisdiction to try capital offences.
However, earlier through his lawyer Joseph Kiryowa, Kitatta had applied for bail but he was instead sent to Kigo prison on remand.
Kitatta’s woes began on January 20 after his young brother Huzairu Kiwalabye was arrested in connection with the gruesome death of Francis Ekalungar, then an Accountant with Case Hospital.
