Following the end of the term of the administration of the general court martial, the president re-appointed Lt General Andrew Gutti as the chairman of the general court martial.
He was sworn in yesterday on 9th/July/2018 alongside five new members appointed to the army court, and this marked the commencement of another one year term after the court has been in recess awaiting for the administration to swear in.
While swearing in, the group vowed to try all matters and administer justice based on evidence without partiality, favour or affection, and also swore by the principle of non-disclose of opinions of the members of the panel as required by the law.
Now the court has already started to hear old cases, issuing of warrants to suspects among others.
Lt General Andrew Gutti’s name is soon expected to dominate the airwaves and papers as he heads the hearing of the top cases including that of General Kale Kayihura who has now been into detention for three weeks, however reasons for his arrest are not yet clear to the public.
