Former Bubulo West MP Tony Kipoi Nsubuga and five UPDF soldiers were on Monday charged at the General Court Martial with treason.

The five officers include; Sgt.Yunus Lemeriga,Cpl Rogers Mweru,Sgt Adams Mawa,Sgt Albino Okeng and Pte Dodola Ijosiga all attached to the army’s armoured brigade in Masaka district.

Court heard that the suspects and others still at large in November 2012 and December 2013 held meetings in Kampala,Wakiso,Masaka,Jinja,Nakasongola and Ntoroko intending to overthrow the regime.

Meanwhile, all the accused denied the charges and they were remanded to Makindye Barracks until 24 April, 2018.

Kipoi was arrested last month in Botswana for allegedly conning millions of cash from people after posing as a witchdoctor.

He was later repatriated to Uganda and charged among others with human trafficking by the Nakawa Magistrates Court.

In  2012, Kipoi was  arrested and charged with treason for allegedly recruiting youths from both Uganda and DRC as rebels in a bid to depose the Ugandan government.

Later he was released on bail but jumped it and later fled to the Democratic Republic of Congo where he has been hiding until February when he was arrested in Botswana.
