Erias Lukwago statement on Court Proceedings at Makindye Military Court on the 9th February 2016 on Gen. Sejusa
The experience in the General Court Martial today was yet another episode of melodrama characterising that kangaroo tribunal. I may not be in position to share all the epic events of the day for obvious reasons but I can’t help relating to you a novel legal phenomenon enunciated by the Military officers prosecuting Gen. Ssejusa. When I presented myself as a surety, the said team, together with the Judge Advocate, put up a vehement opposition, on a fallacious ground that a civilian is not legally competent to stand surely for a four star Military General! !!. That it’s only a fellow General, or army officer of a superior rank who’s competent to do that. Ironically, the chairman of the General court martial, Levy Karuhanga is a Major General. Anyway, the matter is pending a ruling that will be delivered after the presidential election. Talk of justice made in Uganda!!!
