Three senior officers of the UPDF have offered to stand sureties for the temporary release of the former commander of the Ugandan contingent in Somalia, Brig. Michael Ondoga.

Huessein Addah, Yowasi Kiiza and David Wakaalo, all brigadriers were presented by Ondoga as sureties for his release pending trial.

Brig. Ondoga, who has been on remand since October last year, is facing charges of alleged failure to perform his duties and theft of food in connection with the operations while serving under AMISOM in Somalia.

He is seeking for bail to enable him access specialized treatment over his ill-health.

He appeared before the General Court Martial at Makindye chaired by Brig. Moses Ddiba Ssentongo.

The court set May 5 for its ruling.
