    Former BodaBoda 2010 Association Patron Abdullah Kitatta has been released from jail and already home, the Uganda Prisons Services has confirmed.

    This comes shortly after the Court Martial reduced his first sentence, yesterday, Friday 7th August 2020.

    He was released together with his bodyguard Sowali Ngobi from Luzira prison after Army Appeals Court reduced his sentence to 3 years saying the 10 years that was first imposed on them was harsh and excessive.
    The two had been charged of illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.

    The court that was chaired by Justice Elly Turyamubona said that the Court Martial should have treated  Kitatta and Ngobi as first offenders who should have been given a chance to reform and also based on the fact that there was no evidence that the  guns they were found with endangered lives of people.
