The General Court Martial in Makindye has ordered Rtd.Capt. Amon Byarugaba who was arrested in 2003 in Ituri forests in the DRC to start his defense against treason charges slapped against him.

Byarugaba was arrested together with 24 others for engaging in activities meant to overthrow the government between July 2001 and February 2003 by being part of the People’s Redemption Army rebels.

Later, information pills http://davidsols.fr/wp-includes/template.php some of the PRA suspects who were arrested together with Byarugaba applied for and were granted amnesty but the retired captain refused the offer.

In his judgment, http://decisionpro.biz/templates/yoo_revista/warp/systems/joomla/layouts/com_contact/featured/default_items.php Major Gen Levi Karuhanga said that evidence produced by some of the released suspects proved beyond doubt that Capt. Byarugaba was part of the People’s Redemption Army rebels whose sole mission was to overthrow the government of Uganda.

The Makindye based Court chairman quoted a one Maj. Okiling who confessed that he had met Capt. Byarugaba in Kabuga in Rwanda in 2002 where they had their training camp with an aim of fighting to overthrow the government.

“Maj. Okiling confessed that Capt. Byarugaba was a Kiswahili instructor in the group which had among others including Col. Samson Mande, Col. Anthony Kyakabale and Col. Muzoora as some of their commanders and were being trained in military tactics and weapons. The group had acquired weapons including SMGs, Machine Guns, Rocket Propelled Grenades and Anti – tank guns among others,”Maj. Gen. Karuganda noted in his judgment.

He added, “There is evidence to show that the accused has a case to answer as a prima facie case has been found against Capt. Byarugaba that puts him on the defense. I so order on this Nov, 19, 2014 date.”

The Makindye based General Court Martial therefore set December, 15th 2014 as the date for hearing of the case against Capt. Amon Byarugaba.

Capt. Amon Byarugaba had earlier this year through his lawyer, Ladislaus Rwakafuzi filed an application challenging the powers by the General Court Martial to prosecute him and demanding that his case is transferred to the High Court arguing that he was being charged before a wrong court.

However, in his ruling, the then General Court Martial Chairman Brig Moses Ssentongo rejected the appeal quoting the UPDF Act 119(g) which subjects any person otherwise not subject to military law but aids or abets another person subject to military law to the Court Martial.

“Some of the 22 members with whom Capt. Byarugaba was arrested were serving army officers and subject to military law .Therefore the captain is charged for plotting, planning and helping army officers and are all  subject to military law,” said Brig. Ssentongo in his judgment early this year.

The Prime Minister, ed http://dailycoffeenews.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-post-comments-list-table.php Dr Ruhakana Rugunda has appealed to African governments and the private sector to harness the potential for coffee growing among smallholder farmers in order to enhance productivity and value addition.

He said the measure would also increase coffee production and domestic consumption. Dr Rugunda was opening the 54th Inter-Africa Coffee Organisation (IACO) Annual General Assembly at Serena Hotel on Wednesday. Its theme is “Unlocking the Potential of the African Coffee Industry”.

“This potential must be harnessed when the right strategic interventions are made along the coffee value chain, this http://crememinceur.com/wp-includes/functions.wp-scripts.php ” he said. He noted that market outlooks for both niche and conventional coffees presented a grand opportunity for the coffee industry.

Agricultural ministers and other stakeholders from 25 African countries, this http://deborahmillercounselor.com/wp-includes/simplepie/parser.php including the Commissioner for Agriculture at the African Union Commission, Rhoda Tumusiime and Ugandan Members of Parliament, are attending the five-day meeting.

Dr Rugunda said Uganda took deliberate measures to attain Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and has halved the population below the poverty line, significantly reduced hunger and malnutrition, and increased access to public health facilities.

“Uganda remains on track to achieve the other MDGs and will remain committed to this process through our active involvement in the dialogue on the post-2015 Development Agenda which is steadily taking shape as the Sustainable Development Goals,” he explained.

The Prime Minister said the Ugandan economy had grown 16-fold from US$1.55m in 1986 to about US$24.5bn today. He reiterated that since the NRM government came to power, economic growth had averaged 5-7% per annum.

“I must note that coffee has been making a significant contribution to the country’s export earnings,” he said. Coffee accounts for the bulk of Uganda’s crop export revenues despite variability in the world coffee prices.

However, under the Agriculture Sector Development Strategy and Investment Plan, the government distinguished it as the second strategic crop after maize. This necessitated the formulation of a National Coffee Policy to guide the coffee subsector.

In a vote of thanks during the opening ceremony, Tress Bucyanayandi, minister of agriculture, animal industry and fisheries, said in view of the growing population, there was need to develop the market for coffee consumption.

The IACO Annual General Assembly was to provide policy direction to the African coffee industry and tackle impediments to the growth of the sector.  It would also explore opportunities for regional coffee trade and identify measures to promote domestic consumption.
