Abdullah Kitatta has revealed to court that President Museveni ordered for him to be given special security.
This was through the former Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura since the life of the former patron of Boda Boda 2010 was allegedly in danger.
Kitatta who is facing charges of unlawful possession of fire arms submitted this information in the Military Court in Makindye claiming that it was assessed that his life was in danger owing to the duties he was carrying out for National Resistance Movement (NRM) which is the ruling party.
According to Kitatta, he sought help from the NRM chairperson, President Museveni who handed him over to the then Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura.
He added that General Kayihura met him later and instructed the late Andrew Felix Kaweesi to give him security to which effect he was given a plain-clothed police officer.
He denied ever being in possession of a pistol as well when he was arrested an asked that the CCTV cameras of the hotel he was in be used to verify what he is being accused of.
Basing on the account of how he got personal security, Kitatta who defended himself on oath, denied ever being in unlawful possession of a golden pistol.
He explained that at the time of his arrest at Vine Tea Hotel in Wakaliga, Nateete, he had gone to meet some people as a leader and he always met them from the venue.
Therefor, since it has CCTV cameras, footage can be used to verify his innocence.
