Kitatta case adjourned as his bail ruling is to be determined in November


Hearing of the case against Boda Boda 2010 Patron Abdullah Kitatta and others has been adjourned to 13th/November/2018 when Prosecution will bring its fourth witness.

The Chairman General Court Martial Lt. Gen. Andrew Gutti adjourned the case after Defence Lawyers led by Shaban Sanywa cross-examined witness no.3 Major David Agaba, to an extent of accusing Prosecution’s Major Raphael Mugisha of giving answers to the witness, which allegation he denied.

The Court’s Judge Advocate Col Richard Tukachungurwa observed that the allegation by Kitatta’s lawyer was baseless since it had arisen after cross-examination was concluded, while Court Chair Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti asked Lawyer Sanywa not to fear to alert him next time so that he takes action, otherwise his complaint was not justified.

Meanwhile, the same court will rule on Kitatta bail application on 6th/November/2018.

Prosecution’s Captain Samuel Masereje objected to Kitatta’s release on bail saying some of the offences he is facing like being in possession of Military stores is capital in nature and needs proof of either  Kitatta being gravely ill, advanced age of a no objection from the State.

But her lawyer Owomugisha Cerina maintains that Kitatta has Diabetes and high blood pressure which need specialised diet and treatment.
