Gutti who hails from the hunger stricken and impoverished Karamoja Sub-region has been the centre of discussion amongst human rights defenders and activists over the partial way he has handled his court in the case of political prisoners of the National Unity Platform party. In some court sessions, Gutti would be heard insulting political suspects as ‘fools.’ In the case of Kakooza Sanya, one of the NUP supporters in detention, Gutti was heard labeling him a ‘fool’ and sentenced him to solitary confinement to Luzira just because the enraged NUP supporter shouted in the courtroom.
Away from that, Brigadier General Robert Freeman Mugabe is now the new chairperson of the Makindye-based Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) General court-martial following his appointment by President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
