Court will award sentences to the convicts on Wednesday
Two Uganda People's Defence Forces (UPDF) officers have been convicted by the army court, based in Makindye for attacking Mbuya Army Barracks in 2013.
Lt. Augustine Moro, 30, and Pte. Kenneth Kalokwera, 35, were today convicted on charges relating to security, which attracts a maximum penalty of death by the General Court Martial chairman Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti.
In his ruling, Gutti stated that prosecution proved that Moro recruited Kalokwera and commanded others who are still at large to attack Mbuya Barracks.
"It is court's finding that Moro and Kalokwera formed a common intention to attack Mbuya Barracks. I therefore convict them accordingly," Gen. Gutti ruled.
According to Gutti, the accused's participation in the attack has been proved by prosecution beyond reasonable doubt.
The court will award sentences to the convicts on Wednesday.
