High Court’s Civil Division judge Andrew Bashaija has issued a production warrant to two of Major Gen Matayo Kyaligonza’s body guards, who are accused of assaulting journalist Deogratius Otai and traffic officer Sergeant Esther Namaganda while carrying out their official duties.
The matter had been fixed for hearing on Monday but the Attorney General was not represented, although Kyaligonza was represented by Counsel Evans Ochieng.
The judge therefore issued a production warrant to Makindye Military Prison to produce in court Bushindiki Peter and Pte Okurut on 27th January 2020 for hearing.
In March 2019, Deogratius Otai a journalist working with Uganda Broadcasting cooperation (UBC) dragged to court General Kyaligonza and his guards accusing them of assaulting him and destroying his camera
He wants the accused and government to compensate him with 340 million shillings as damages
