Kitatta was charged with several others mounting to 12 in total on charges related to possession of military arms and other hardware designated for army use only.
The expulsion came about when the prosecutor was cross examining the witness in the court stand, which made Muyanja to lose his temper and bang the sit he was on shouting on top of his voice
This was interpreted as a sign of defiance and lack of respect for the court by the judge in case.
said Lt. Gen Gutti He continued to rap his statement
“Why do you bang the table when your colleague is presenting? Who are You,? Get out of this court and don’t return,”
