The Last Batch of the Accused persons jointly Charged with MP Michael Kabaziguruka
The army General Court Martial will pronounce itself on the suspects jointly charged with the Nakawa MP, Michael Kabaziguruka on December 10th 2018, URN has learnt. 

Kabaziguruka was jointly charged with Captain Andrew Ojaa, Retired Private, Frederick Namara, Private Christopher Omony, and Assistant Inspector of Police, Ferdinand Obulejo for alleged treason.

However, most of the suspects have tabled certificate before the army General Court Martial showing that they have been granted amnesty. The documents were presented before the court martial by the suspect's lawyer, Captain Charles Sekayita showing that the accused persons confessed to their involvement in treasonous activities and denounced their activities.

The prosecution led by Major Raphael Mugisha has raised no objection to the documents tendered before court. According to the Amnesty Act, 2000, any forces that are fighting the government and are ready to denounce rebellious activities are free to report to the Commission for pardon.

Once released, Kabaziguruka will remain alone on the charge. In 2016, the accused persons were arrested from various places on allegations that between February and June 2016, in Kampala, Wakiso and Luweero, with intentions to prejudice the security or interests of Uganda committed acts of treachery and infiltrated the Uganda People's Defense Forces.

They reportedly plotted to overthrow government through the use of arms. Ten of the suspects pleaded guilty some time back and were reprimanded before they released on amnesty. The trial stalled after Kabaziguruka obtained a High Court order from Justice Patricia Basaza blocking his trial in the General Court Martial.

In 2017, Constitutional Court Judge, Remmy Kasule also blocked the trial temporarily until the main application where the legislator is challenging his trial is determined.
