Army court charges FDC MP with treachery

MP Michael Kabaziguruka

Nakawa Division MP Michael Kabaziguruka has Tuesday been produced in Makindye General Court Martial and charged with offences relating to security and treachery.

Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] party claimed court presided over by the new Chairman Lt Gen Andrew Gutti detained even phones of those attending the court.

“We are curious to know who are the co-framed with Hon Michael Kabaziguruka. I understand that the coached witness Capt Ojara is in the house.”

Their Youth minister Paga Gloria represented FDC in the court.

Kabaziguruka has been in and out of police custody on allegations of illegal possession of guns.

He was first detained at Special Investigations Unit in Kireka, then Nalufenya Police Station in Jinja and then driven back to his home where he was put under house arrest.

His arrest was linked to 30 soldiers who reportedly plotted a coup against President Yoweri Museveni’s government.

It was at the same time that Uganda People’s Congress [UPC] mobiliser for northern Uganda, Dan Oola Odiya, was imprisoned for treason.

Entebbe Airforce Garrison Commander, Colonel Dan Opito Odwee, was also arrested for subversion.

Kabaziguruka was arrested before on similar charges back in September 2012.

He was accused of forming a new rebel group known as Revolutionary Forces for the Liberation of Uganda (RFLU).

Together with Frederick Namara, John Kareebe, 50, the FDC chairman of Rugarama sub county, Rushenyi, Ntungamo and John Rutagororwa, 56, a primary school head teacher, Kabaziguruka was charged with treason at Nakawa court.

According to state, the group while in Kampala, Wakiso, Soroti, Kiboga, Ntungamo, Kenya and Congo plotted to overthrow the government through meetings, recruitment, mobilisation, acquisition of arms, uniforms, soliciting funds.

The group was, however, freed by High Court after the state failed to produce evidence.
