Court delays retirement as Sejusa ails in Luzira



High Court in Kampala has extended judgement in the retirement case of former Coordinator of Intelligence Services, Gen. David Sejusa.

Court will deliver its judgement on Monday March 14, on whether Sejusa is still a serving army officer or not.

The ruling planned for Thursday flopped after Justice Margaret Oguli Oumo said she was not ready to proceed.

She cited a pile of petitions which have kept her busy to attend to Sejusa’s case.

On December 3, 2014, Sejusa applied to be retired officially from the army and expected a reply within 90 days.

Under section 66 of the UPDF act, the time limit has since expired.

Last month, military court denied General Sejusa bail maintaining that given his rank, at least one of the sureties should have been a general in the army.

His last appearance in court was on February 2, 2016 where he was remanded to Luzira prison.

Prosecution objected to the sureties presented by the defence team.

The sureties included Erias Lukwago, the Kampala Lord Mayor and Dr. Kizito Deo Lukyamuzi, a surgeon at Case Medical Centre.

Colonel Kagoro Asingula, the leader of the prosecution team rejected the sureties, saying they needed someone at the same rank with Sejusa to stand surety for him.

Kagoro also objected to the bail application saying he could meddle in the ongoing investigations related to his trial.

General Sejusa is represented by David Mushabe and human rights lawyer, Ladislaus Rwakafuzi.

His hearing will again be tomorrow, Friday 11th March since investigations are soon completed with.
