    Uganda’s Chief of Defence Forces Gen. Aronda Nyakairima. Nakawa Magistrates Court has dismissed a suit filed by Luwero Woman MP Democratic Party’s (DP) Brenda Nabukenya seeking orders against the army commander General Aronda Nyakayirima over remarks of a possible army takeover of government.

    Ms. Nabukenya, through her lawyers Alaka and Company Advocates, had filed the complaint on oath to have Gen. Nyakairima tried by way of private prosecution over statements he allegedly made warning that the army could be forced to take over power if politicians do not change course.

    The Army Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) made the alleged comments on the 23rd Day of January 2013, during a press conference, at Mbuya General Military Headquarters.

    The Democratic Party filed the suit demanding criminal summons for the army chief to defend his position.

    The DP pressed five cases against Nyakayirima among them being treason, inciting mutiny among intimidating the parliament and threatening the public.
