Former Inspector General of Police General Kale Kayihura is currently at the General Court Martial in Makindye.
Former bush war General Kayihura who has been under custody for two months arrived clad in his Uganda People’s Defence Forces uniform being chauffeured in a four star army green land cruiser with a military patrol vehicle.
Earlier in the morning, Kayihura’s lawyers led by Joseph Matsiko, Elson Karuhanga, Peter Kabatsi and Jet Tumwebaze arrived at the military court martial.
Also present were his relatives clad in black t-shirts with inscriptions that read, “We Stand with General Kale Kayihura,” amid very tight security surveillance manned by Military police personnels.
Kale as he is fondly called by his peers was on June 13, 2018 arrested from his farm in Kashagama in Lyantonde district by the deputy chief of Defence Forces Lt. General Wilson Mbadi.
This was after he was dropped as Inspector General of Police by the appointing authority on March 05, 2018 ending his thirteen reign as the police boss.
He was succeeded by his deputy John Martin Okoth Ochola.
