The General Court Martial has remanded seven Ugandan security officers accused of sharing sensitive information with Rwandan government agents to Makindye Military Police Barracks.
The suspects include Second Lieutenants Alex Kasamula attached to Military Police, Phillip Neville Ankunda, attached to Special Forces Headquarters as a Pilot, Privates Nathan Ndwaine, Moses Asiimwe and Godfrey Mugabi, all Engineering and Aircrafts Maintenance students at Nakasongola Air Defense Wing among others.
The suspects appeared on Monday afternoon before the Makindye based General Court Martial chaired by Lt. General Andrew Gutti.
They were charged with offenses relating to security contrary to section 130 of the UPDF Act, which provides for offense relating to disclosure of confidential information to an enemy or unauthorized members of the defense forces, person or the public.
According to prosecution led by Captain Ambrose Baguma, between February and May this year, the accused persons and others still at large at various places within Kampala City, shared sensitive information with agents of Rwandan authorities with intentions to prejudice the security of the Defense Forces of the Ugandan government.
Last year, President Yoweri Museveni and Kagame held various meetings to try and resolve the stalemate. The talks that seemed to have been progressing well suffered a setback because of the Covid-19 pandemic. ENDS.
