Peter Kibirige in his affidavit also says he is his family’s only bread winner and that keeping him in detention will be  punishing the innocent family members.

Lt Col Philip Frank Eguma says that he is a well-known UPDF serving officer with no criminal record and he is a father to school going children who don’t need to be deprived of fatherly care.

Apart from Col Eguma, the other three presented three sureties each with an LC1 recommendation letter and a National Identity Card.

The state prosecutor Major Raphael Mugisha asked for an adjournment to enable them prepare their reply to these submissions.

Court martial chairman Lt Gen Andrew Gutti adjourned the matter to 19th April when the state will reply and for Lt Col Eguma to present his sureties
