Moses Ssentongo, approved the suspects including Lt. Col. Phillip Frank Iguma, Pte Kenneth Ssekajja, Capt. John Bosco Lutwama, Lt. Ronald Wayibi, Nasim Namuzimuule, Marvin Ssemwogerere Kato, Ndugga Musaazi, John Lumala and Francis Kiwanuka were read offences related to security according to section 130 (i) (d) and aiding the commission of offences in accordance to section 184(i) (a) of the UPDF Act before pleading not guilty of the charges.

However, the accused through their lawyers led by Capt Nasser Drago explained to court the poor conditions of the cells at Makindye barracks where some of them are being detained.

According to Drago, they are being inhumanly treated citing lack of beddings and medicine while in detention.

The accused further told court chaired by Brig Ssentongo that worst of all, they sleep with handcuffs on their hands which they demanded to be addressed soon in respect of their human rights.

In response, the prosecution side led by Capt. Fredrick Kangwamu denied claims of harassing inmates adding, that it’s an allegation which is not proved hence urging officers from the barracks to clarify on the matter.


In their defence, one of the officers from the barracks said that he is not aware of such stressing, that he will report the matter to his superiors for investigations.

Prosecution alleges that the accused and others still at large between the months of February and May this year in the various places of Kampala, Wakiso, Masaka, Luweeo and in Nairobi Kenya, consciously omitted to disclose vital information about recruitment of people to engage into activities intended to prejudice the security of the defence forces by attacking the armoured warfare barracks in Mubende district.
