Speaking of transparency

The major general serving as president of the general court-martial that is taking evidence behind closed doors at Uganda's Makindye Barracks has warned a defense attorney not to leak information about the proceedings:
"The court has been hearing the testimony of the first prosecution witness, Lt. Col. Edson Muhanguzi, formally the commander of the Uganda Battle Group ten in Somalia in camera because of its 'sensitivity' to national security and the African Union led operations against the al-shabaab terrorists in the horn of Africa nation.
"He is the only witness who has so far testified since [Brig. Michael] Ondoga's trial began. According to the state, Muhanguzi's testimony touches on the sensitive areas of the operations against the al-shabaab terrorists, deployment and the military hardware deployed against the enemy among others."
