Edward Sebuufu [Eddie Mutwe], Buken Ali alias Nubian LI, Ntege William commonly known as Kyuma Kya Yesu, and other 23 National Unity Platform (NUP) members who have been facing charges in Masaka high court have on Monday evening arrived at Makindye Military Barracks in Kampala to face the Court Martial.
The Homeland Newspaper has reliably learned that the NUP crew who were arrested in Kalangala a week ago have been detained in Masaka after Court declined to grant them bail.
“They were brought in a prison bus and escorted by a military convoy. They reached Makindye at around 7 pm,” said a source at Makindye military barracks.
Among those transferred to Makindye include Edward Sebuufu alias Eddie Mutwe, Buken Ali aka Nubian LI, Ntege William commonly known as Kyuma Kya Yesu, and others.
This comes a day after NUP legal officers wrote a letter to Court and Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to have Mutwe and his group released before January 19 when they would appear before the Magistrate for mention of their case.
However, the lawyers’ efforts had been unsuccessful by the time the crew was transported from Masaka to Makindye.
It remains unclear what new charges Mutwe and his crew will face in the Military Court.
