He had earlier turned down police summons.

Otunnu allegedly accused President Museveni of masterminding assassinations of his friends in FRONASA and political rivals in several places including Luweero.

He made the controversial remarks during a press conference in Kampala on January 16, 2013.

The UPC leader is being charged with two counts of accusing falsely the president of the Republic of Uganda and falling short of honoring police summons issued on February 27, 2013.

Otunnu denied the charges.

The politician, who was today represented by city lawyer Asuman Basalirwa, recently assured the press at the party headquarters in Kampala: “I still stand by everything I said about Museveni regarding the Luweero saga.”

He said Museveni has a responsibility to explain to the people of Uganda and to the international community his footsteps in these episodes.
