Former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Gen. Kale Kayihura has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him in the General Court Martial.

Kayihura was arraigned before court on Friday morning and he was charged with three counts which included; issuance of firearms to unauthorized persons, failure to protect war materials and aiding or abetting kidnapping by commission, repatriating Rwandan exiles, refugees and Ugandan citizens to Rwanda between 2012 and 2016.

He was remanded back to Makidye Military barracks and he will return to court on 28th August, 2018 for hearing of his bail application hearing and on 4th September, 2018 for mention of case.

Kayihura was arrested in June from his home in Kashagama, Lyantonde district on the directives of the UPDF chief of defence forces Gen David Muhoozi.

He was flown in a UPDF helicopter to Mbuya army headquarters and referred to Makindye Military Barracks where he has been detained up to date.
