22 Graduate in Fufa-Tangosport Administration Course

Major Patrice Ajiku, nurse a UPDF officer working as an Aide De Camp to the Director General of Internal Security Organization (ISO) was yesterday called as the first Prosecution witness to pin Private Emilly Katabaazi, the former aide to Amama Mbabazi  accused of absenting himself from work.

Prosecution alleges that between 21st and 27th of May 2015, while deployed at the ISO headquarters in Nakasero, Katabaazi without authority left office and went to diverse places in Jinja, Mbale, Soroti, Lira, Gulu, Arua and Yumbe districts which was against the discipline of the UPDF.

It is further alleged by prosecution that while in these places without proper authorization from the UPDF,  Katabazi made public speeches thereby contravening rule 2 (1) of Code of Conduct for the Defense Forces.

Katabaazi was working as a research officer in the office of the Prime Minister where he was later discharged from before his one and half contract period ended.

“Private Katabazi was sent back to ISO from OPM on grounds that there was no more work for him. On returning to ISO as is our routine Katabazi was put on the redeployment pending list on which he is still up to present,” submitted Ajiku in his testimony before the General court martial chaired by  Maj General Levi Karuhanga.

Ajiku added however, that during this time officers from various parts of the country made reports to the Director General ISO inquiring whether he was aware of Katabazi’s activities in their areas.

“The Regional ISO officer for Western Region quoted a letter from District Security Officer( DISO) Yumbe  inquiring from him whether he knew about Katabazi’s mobilization activities and meeting people in his jurisdiction,” added Ajiku.

Ajiku informed court that he got to know about all this information because among his duties is to assist the Director General in day to day activities like Finance, administration as well as managing Human Resource.

Court martial Chairman Maj Gen Elly Karuhanga adjourned the hearing of this case to 20thJanuary 2016 when he is expected to pronounce the court ruling on Katabazi’s bail application.
