THE trial of the case in which fourteen people are accused for attacking Kabamba Military Barracks in Mubende district with intentions of overthrowing government has been deferred for lack of prosecution witnesses.
The General Court Martial presided over by Maj. Gen. Levi Karuhanga postponed the hearing of the case to April 28, after prosecution failed to produce witnesses to testify against the suspects.
Prosecution led by Major Fredrick Kangwamu alleges that the suspects between September 2013 and May 2014 in various districts in Uganda and Nairobi in Kenya consciously omitted to disclose vital information to the army authorities about the recruitment of people to engage into activities to prejudice the security of UPDF and preparations to attack Armoured Warfare Training School (AWTS) in Mubende district.
Prosecution further alleges that during the same period the suspects aided Lt. Col. Phillip Frank Eguma, and Lt. Ronald Waibi Mwavu, to prejudice the security of AWTS in Mubende district.
The suspects include Lt. Phillip Frank Eguma, Pt. Kenneth Ssekajja, Capt. Halman Ba, Lt. Ronald Mwavu, Sgt. Nduga Musaazi, Nasim Namuzimuule, Marvin Ssemwogerere Kato, John Lumala Salongo, Patrick Kibuuka, Solomon Matovu, Peter Kibirige, Herbert Biyimbwa, Ali Mukiibi and Francis Kiwanuka
The suspects include five UPDF soldiers and nine civilians including one woman.
The court adjourned the case to April, 28, when the trial is slated to start.
