Gen Sejusa Case Hearing Flops

Gen David Sejusa

Hearing of the case in which former chief of intelligence service Gen. David Sejjusa filed to High Court’s Civil Division seeking an order for the UPDF Commissions Board retire him officially from the army did not take place today as scheduled.

This was due to the absence of the trial judge Justice Oumo Oguli who went for burial upcountry.

On receiving this information, case High Court Deputy Registrar Beatrice Stella Atingu adjourned the matter to Friday 13th 2016. The adjournment was agreed upon by both parties in this case.

At the court house, hospital Sejusa was present together with three of his lawyers Max Mutabingwa, see David Mushabe and Kenneth Munungu while the respondent was represented by senior state Attorney George Kalemera and Lt Col Brian Mogi

The matter had been brought up for a rejoinder from Sejjusa’s side since in the last court sitting the state attorney George Karemeera asked court to dismiss this application on costs on grounds that it lacked merit; having been filed to court when the required period of 90days from the date of applicant’s discharge from the army had elapsed

Karemeera also noted that Sejjusa is an officer of high command in the army and that such officers retire at the age of 65. Sejjusa is now 62years old.

Gen Sejjusa filed the case at high court last year asking for retirement when the Army strapped him off from payroll, withdrew his uniforms, guns and stopped all the allowances he enjoyed  as a General.

On top of that Sejjusa wants a compensation of one billion shillings from the Army for his suffering.
