Ugandan general jailed pending trial

The Philadephia Tribune (US) reports today:
A military general who criticized Uganda’s longtime president was charged in a court-martial and remanded to jail, but his supporters say he is the victim of state persecution.
Gen. David Sejusa was charged with being absent without leave, participating in political activities and insubordination.
A lawyer for Sejusa, David Mushabe, described Sejusa as “a prisoner of conscience” who has been targeted for calling President Yoweri Museveni a dictator.
A more complete report is found in All Africa.
