All is not well with former jailbird Abdullah Kitatta, the patron of the deadly Kiboko Squad gang known as Boda-boda 2010.
Our Moles reveal that Kitatta is terribly ill and battling a yet to identified disease, which is slowly but surely eating him away.
Close family members who preferred anonymity intimated to our Moles that Kitatta has been bedridden for at least the past three weeks and his health condition hasn’t been the same since his release from prison, because it deteriorates every day.
Kitatta was released from Kitalya prisons where he had served a three year jail sentence after he was convicted by the General Court Martial in Makindye on charges of illegal possession of firearms and being in illegal possession of government stores.
It is said however that ever since he was released from jail life has never been the same again for Kitatta and he has kept away from the public realm, despite the fact that he was once a staunch National Resistance Movement (NRM) mobiliser.
Kitatta was released from Luzira Prison in August after serving a three year sentence. The release came after the Court Martial Appeal Court (CMAC) reduced his sentence from 10 to three years.
Kitatta and his bodyguard, Sowali Ngobi, were jailed 10 years after the General Court Martial found them guilty of possessing firearms ammunitions.
However, the CMAC Chaired by Elly Turyamubona reduced the duo’s sentence to three years, saying the ten years’ imposed on them was harsh, excessive and amount to miscarriage Justice.
“We set aside the maximum sentence of ten years imposed on each of the appellant and find a three years’ imprisonment appropriate,” Turyamubona ruled.
He added that the reduction of the sentence took into consideration the time spent on remand and that spent serving the sentence.
