The army spokesperson Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, when contacted by Chimpreports said Sejusa would be paraded before the General Court Martial on Tuesday next week.

He however declined to release any information pertaining the unprecedented arrest, saying that this would be premature.

“I don’t think it is appropriate for me to give you information regarding a case that is before court,” he said. The court is going to read out the case he is accused of on Tuesday.”

Sejusa could be facing charges ranging from conspiracy to commit treason, following his recent media comments that had already mobilized masses to topple President Yoweri Museveni’s remarks in a mass uprising.

“How you wage a struggle – political or otherwise, is informed by the type of threat you face. If you are facing a political struggle, you organise politically,” said the former intelligence organs coordinator.

“If you are facing a dictatorship, you organize a resistance.”

Sejusa told NBS Television this week that efforts to obtain political reforms in the current governance setup had not borne fruit.

“Museveni can never accept reforms. It’s a waste of time because dictatorships are never reformed; they are dismantled,” said Sejusa.
Hearing of the bail application filed in by Sarah Nabikolo, price the widow to the murdered city businessman Eriya Bugembe Sebunya, ambulance and two of her co accused flopped today before the High court Judge Wilson Masalu Museni due to his tight schedule.

Nabikolo who is on remand at Luzira Prison with her sister Sandrah Nakungu and a police officer Ashraf Jadeni for the alleged murder of Kasiwukira, came to court ready for the hearing of their bail application only to be told that the trial judge wasn’t available.

In a meeting held in the judge’s chambers, Justice Musene informed the accused that he wouldn’t be available today due to the ongoing judge’s seminar at Nakawa and thus adjourned the matter to Wednesday this week.

She says the hearing of the case in the High Court has delayed since May 2015 when she was committed and that State has not taken steps to speed it up.
