The hearing of a case in which 14 people including Lt. Col. Phillip Frank Eguma, are accused of plotting to overthrow government has failed to take off for lack of prosecution witness.

On Tuesday, the accused appeared before the General Court Martial presided over by Lt. Gen. Andrew Gutti to answer charges related to security and aiding the commissioning of an offence.

“You should stop the habit of adjournments due to lack of witnesses. Next time, you should bring the witness so that we can speed up trial of the accused,” Gutti told the prosecution team.
