The Makindye General Court Martial has issued an arrest warrant for Nakawa Municipality MP, Michael Kabaziguruka, for missing a court hearing of his case.

Kabaziguruka was charged together with other 25 people including UPDF officers for allegedly contriving a plot to infiltrate defense forces and prejudice its security to overthrow the government of Uganda by use of firearms.

The offenses were allegedly committed between February and June 2016 in districts of Kampala, Wakiso and Luweero.

In October 2016, High Court Judge, Justice Yasin Nyanzi, granted him a 10 million non-cash bond and released from Kigo prison.

In January 2017, the Director of Civil Litigation in the Attorney General’s chambers Denis Bireije, said Kabaziguruka was rightfully charged before the General Court Martial (GCM).

The MP challenged the trial in the Constitutional Court.

On Wednesday, the lead prosecutor, Maj. Raphael Mugisha, told a 7-member court chaired by Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti, that Kabaziguruka refused to appear for the mention of his case.

According to Maj. Mugisha, the interim order Kabaziguruka got from the constitutional court blocking his trial became invalid when the same court annulled injunction orders issued by single judges.

Maj. Mugisha prayed that court orders military police to arrest Kabaziguruka.

The seven-member team then issued the warrant of arrest, which allows military police to arrest the legislator anytime from today.
