Army Court Set to Decide On Kitatta’s Second Bail Application

State prosecution in the case before Makindye General Court Martial, in which Bodaboda 2010 patron Abdullah Kitatta is facing charges of unlawful possession of fire arms, has asked court to dismiss his second bail application.

Prosecutor Captain Samuel Masereje asked the court chaired by Lt. Gen. Andrew Gutti to dismiss the application on grounds that the applicant lacked exceptional circumstances such as grave illness which cannot be managed at Makindye Military Barracks.

Maserejje added that Kitatta was likely to interfere with the witnesses especially in Lubaga Division where he was the NRM chairman.

During today’s court session, CMI’s Major David Agaba who was the third prosecution witness who commanded the arrest of Kitatta finalized his testimony.

Maj Agaba told court that Kitatta was indeed found in possession of weapons including golden pistol.

The court chairman in the end, appointed November 6th 2018 as the date when he will decide on whether or not Kitatta should be released.

The bobaboda 2010 boss is accused along with 12 others of unlawful possession of firearms, unlawful possession of military stores and failure to protect war materials allegedly committed in January 2018.

The penalties for such offices under military law range from life imprisonment to the death sentence.
