President Yoweri Museveni who is also the commander in chief of the UPDF has reappointed Lt Gen Andrew Gutti as the chairman of the General Court Martial.

“Congratulations to Lt Gen Andrew Gutii and team for being reappointed by the High Command to the UPDF General Court Martial,” Brig Richard Karemire tweeted on Tuesday.

Gen. Guti's two-year term had expired, and sources indicated that this was the reason why former Police chief General Kale Kayihurahad not yet been brought to court.

Kayihura is being held at Makindye military barracks, he has not been brought to court, and no charges have been preferred against him yet.
