Kayihura Says Ready to Face Military Court Martial, Blocks Lawyers from Running to court to secure his Release

Embattled former Inspector General of police General Kale Kayihura over the weekend met his lawyers of Kampala Associated Associates (KAA) and informed them that he is ready to face the law if there is any charge against him.

Kayihura also instructed them that they shouldn’t rush to court for Habeas Corpus orders because he knows well it is the commander in chief that is to determine his fate.

Kayihura, who is a lawyer by professional, knows the repercussion of the Habeas Corpus which can affect his case if he is to be charged in army court martial.

According to sources from Kayihura’s family members whom this website managed to talk to narrated that the General knows what president might decide.

On Monday former director Crime intelligence Lt Col. Atwooki Ndahura through his lawyers of Ocheng and company advocate filed for Habeas Corpus order which was granted by high court.

High court judge Musa Sekana ordered CDF, IGP and CMI director to produce Ndahura dead or alive but army refused to produce him.

Over fifteen days after the arrest and confinement of former Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura on unspecified offenses, the government is still silent on the next move it will take against the four-star-general.

For the almost 13 years he was at the helm as Inspector General of Police, Kayihura enjoyed quick access to Museveni. Praised as a good ruling party cadre, Kayihura’s fortunes have, however, rapidly diminished since his sacking in March.

He was arrested on June 13 from his farm in Kashagama Lyantonde district before he was airlifted by the military chopper to Mbuya to meet the chief of defense forces. He was later sent to Makindye military barracks where he is being detained.

The Internal Affairs minister, Gen Jeje Odongo, without giving specifics, told a news conference last week that Gen Kayihura had a case to answer.
