Kipoi and the soldiers in court

Former Bubulo West Member of parliament Tony Kipoi Nsubuga today appeared before Court Martial following his days in detention.

Kipoi was extradited from Botswana last month to face trial in Uganda for witchcraft human trafficking.

He was produced at the General Court Martial on Makindye on Monday and charged with security related offences.

He is charged alongside five UPDF officers who allegedly tried to overthrow the government.

They are; Sgt. Yunus Lemeriga, Cpl Rogers Mweru, Sgt Adams Mawa, Sgt Albino Okeng and Pte Dodola Ijosiga, all attached to the armoured brigade in Masaka.

He allegedly convened meetings to recruit soldiers intending to prejudice security of defence forces in areas of Kampala, Wakiso, Masaka, Jinja, Nakasongola and Ntoroko between 2012 and 2013.

Their bail was cancelled and remanded to Makindye military police cells.

The court adjourned to April 24, 2018 pending investigations.
