Kabamba Attack Case Stalls

The trial of 12 suspects in the botched attack on Kabamba military barracks has stalled, after a key witness failed to show up at the General Court Martial.

Prosecution alleges that between February and May 2014, Kenneth Sekajja, formerly attached to air-defence, Nakasongola, and other suspects, failed to disclose vital information about the recruitment of people who were supposed to attack Kabamba in Mubende district. In the same period, prosecution says, the suspects attacked the Kabamba Armoured Warfare Training School (AWTS).

Other suspects include Lt Col Frank Eguma (the alleged team leader), formerly attached to Kimaka as director of staffs Capt Hillman Aleper, formerly attached to AWTS Lt Ronald Waibi Mwavu from Mubende, Pte Sekajja, and retired Capt Bosco Rutwama.

When the case came up for further hearing on November 21, Maj Fredrick Kangwamu asked for a month’s adjournment to enable prosecution trace a key witness, Cpl Norman Ssembatya, who was not readily available, an application court granted.
