COURT MARTIAL   KAYIHURA  BAIL

Clad in a black suit, the former Police Chief Gen. Edward Kale Kayihura today reported to the army court in Makindye as one of the bail conditions set by chairman Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti.

Upon his release on August 28, 2018, Kayihura was ordered to report to the court registrar in every first week of the month as one of the bail conditions.

At about 10:20am, Kayihura arrived at the General Court Martial (GCM) in a Toyota land cruiser with tinted windows with Ministry of Defence number plate UG 0260 D, escorted by army green pickup truck full of Military Police officers.

His (Kayihura's) car parked near the court chairman's office while his escort pickup truck was directed to the parking lot.

Kayihura then straight away went to the court registrar's office where he signed on the bail forms to confirm that he reported to court. The court registrar is Maj. John Bizimana.

He spent about 10 minutes in the registrar's office before he was led to Gen. Gutti's office as the military personnels surrounded him to prevent journalists from taking his pictures.

When Kayihura first appeared in court in August, there was heavy security deployment and blocking of roads, but when he appeared in court today, business at the army court was normal.

Kayihura is accused of failure to protect war materials and aiding the kidnap and illegal repatriation of Rwandan nationals. The offence attracts a maximum penalty of death, on conviction.

Prosecution alleges that Kayihura between 2010 and 2018 on various occasions allowed the use of arms by unauthorised persons, especially members of Boda-Boda 2010. The group is led by Abdullah Kitatta, who together with others is facing charges of illegal possession of army equipment in the same court.
