City Hall Court Grade One Magistrate Valerian Tuhimbise has adjourned Rtd Lt General Henry Tumukunde’s treason case to November.
The Magistrate also threatened to dismiss the case after prosecution’s Viola Tusingwire informed court that investigations were still ongoing.
The Presidential candidate appeared before the City Hall court today morning on charges of treason and unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.
Now the magistrate has given prosecution the last adjournment until November 23rd and if it fails to complete its investigations, she will dismiss the case for want of prosecution due to signs of unreadiness.
Prosecution states that on March 5th, while appearing on a morning show at one of the local TV stations in Kampala, the Rtd. Lt Gen made utterances which were calculated to instigated the Republic of Rwanda to invade Uganda and cause a unlawful change of government.
Prosecution further alleges that on 13th March 2020, security operatives conducted a cordon and search operation at Lt. Gen. Tumukunde’s office along Impala Avenue in the reclusive suburb of Kololo and recovered firearms which the General was allegedly holding with a valid licence.
