Court in Kampala has fixed May 27 as the day it will deliver judgment in a case in which former intelligence chief Gen. David Denise filed seeking court order on whether he is still a serving Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF) officer.
The dissident General claims he was constructively discharged from the army and therefore there is no reason why the force should not retire him as he had earlier asked.
On the other hand, army contends that Sejusa is still a serving officer subject and answerable to the UPDF rules.
The presiding judge Margret Oguli Oumo of the High Court in Uganda’s capital Kampala set the date after hearing submissions from both Sejusa’s and UPDF’s lawyers following a protracted battle between the two.
The general applied to retire from the army in 2013 but that has never happened up to now.
The army’s refusal to retire Sejusa compelled him to seek court order saying he wants to live like an ordinary civilian.
Sejusa’s woes started when he penned a dossier claiming there is a planned assassination of all the generals against Muhoozi project.
Muhoozi Kainerugaba is the son of Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni.
The project, according to the general was about Museveni installing his son as president.
Following the controversial dossier, Sejusa went in a self-imposed exile.
