Is he a soldier or not?

A former inspector general of Uganda's police is challenging his trial by court-martial. The Justice and Constitutional Affairs Minister, Maj Gen Kahinda Otafiire, has commented:
When journalists inquired from him about the status of Gen Kale Kayihura, shortly after the event, he said the former Inspector General of Police will be subjected to military law because he is still a serving army official.

“When Gen Kayihura was relieved of his duties as IGP, he did not lose his army status and that is why the court martial, which is constitutionally recognised, will determine his fate because he is a soldier. His fate is now with the Court Martial and not any other person,” Gen Otafiire said. 
Gen Kayihura is being detained at Makindye Army Barracks.
