Prosecution also displayed the second pistol with 15 bullets and an SMG gun before court as exhibits. Kasaija also positively identified two military uniforms, seven caps and ammunition that they recovered from the Boda-Boda 2010 offices at Wakaliga-Nateete.
Kasaija told court that he was part of the team that picked up Kitatta and his brother Uzailu Kiwalabye, the prime suspect in the murder of Francis Ekalungar, the former accountant of Case clinic.
According to Kasaija, the phone logs showed that Kitatta was in constant communication with the suspect, which prompted CMI to track him leading to his arrest at Vine hotel in Wakaliga. He recounted to court how he was instructed by his boss Captain James Agaba, the director of operations in Counter-Terrorism to go to Busega roundabout on January 19 and pick up Ekalungar's murder suspects.
Kasaija said after picking up Kiwalabye from Busega, a group of rowdy boda-boda followed their vehicle to CMI while pelting them with stones and threatened to set their vehicle ablaze unless they release the suspects.
Shortly after hearing from Kasaija, Lt. Gen Andrew Gutti, the Court Martial chairman delivered his ruling on Kitatta's bail application. He declined to release him, saying he faces grave offences, which attract a severe penalty of life imprisonment.
He also explained that Kitatta has a close working relationship with senior officers in police and might interfere with the on-going investigations and threaten witnesses.
Lt. Gen Gutti also dismissed Kitatta's sureties, saying they are of a low and ordinary profile who cannot compel him to return to court for trial. He there sent back on remand at Makindye military barracks until June 12, 2018 when he will return for further hearing.
