Winnie Byanyima, wife of jailed opposition politician, Kizza Besigye, yesterday asserted that the chairman of the General Court Martial, Gen. Elly Tumwiine, is not competent to handle legal issues.
Besigye was yesterday charged in the General Court Martial with terrorism and illegal possession of firearms. He was remanded in jail until his case is heard again on December 19th.
Byanyima said Gen. Tumwiine is a painter and dressmaker who lacks credentials to head any court of law.

Byanyima stated the trial of her husband before both the High Court and the General Court martial is irregular. She contended that the double trial is President Museveni's attempt to remove any opposition to his bid for a third term in office.
