The Makindye General Court martial has indefinitely expelled Jimmy Muyanja, one of the lawyers representing jailed members of Boda Boda 2010 for alleged misconduct.
Muyanja has been representing 11 Boda Boda 2010 members who are standing trial in the army court over unlawful possession of firearms and Military equipment contrary to section 161 of the UPDF Act.
The suspects include Abdullah Kitatta, the Patron of Boda Boda 2010 Association, Matia Ssenfuka, Joel Kibirige, Hassan Ssemata, Jonathan Kayondo, Ssengooba Hassan, Sande Ssemwogerere, John Ssebandeke, Hussein Mugema, Fred Bwanika and Amon Twinomujuni.
The suspects appeared this morning before the Army General Court martial chaired by Lt General Andrew Gutti to continue with the cross examination of a prosecution witness, Private Richard Kasaija. All was going well until Muyanja banged the table accusing the State Prosecutor, Major Raphael Mugisha of signaling to the witness on which questions to respond to during cross examination.
Muyanja argued that the witness was supposed to defend his testimony given that he is the one testifying against the accused persons. The lawyer had asked Kasaija to explain the events that unfolded when he arrested the accused persons on January 19th, 20th and 21st 2018.
The court martial chairperson, Lt General Andrew Gutti couldn’t handle his behaviors and expelled him
