The behavior irritated the court martial who reacted by dispensing the lawyer telling him not to return for future hearings.
“Are you silly? Whom are you banging tables for….get out. Military Police should escort this man, never come back to my court,” Lt Gen Gutti rumbled.
Still raged, Lt Gen Gutti shorn-off Mr Kitatta’s application to present CCTV footage to disproof Pte Kasaija’s that the accused possessed a gun and military supplies.

Pte Kasaija, attached to the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI), testified that Mr Kitatta was found in possession of a pistol with five bullets and military uniforms at the time of his arrest while the latter’s co-accused persons were found with an SMG rifle with 20 bullets, machetes, iron bars, military uniforms and sticks, which they held while planning to carry out a demonstration.
Mr Kitatta has been on remand in military prison since February. He is jointly charged with 12 others, including Mr John Ssebandeke, a crime preventer from Nabweru in Wakiso District over alleged unlawful possession of firearms.
Mr Kitatta and his co-accused will stay on remand until September 10 to enable prosecution present the second witness.
