The General Court Martial chairman Brig Gen Freeman Mugabe said,

“The state has withdrawn the charges.You are accordingly set free. I wish you all the best.”

In 2018, Kayihura was arrested and charged with failure to protect materials, failure to supervise police officers, and abetting kidnap of Rwandan refugees who were forcefully repatriated back home. Kayihura has been on bail since 2020.

The decision to drop charges against Kayihura comes just a month after President Museveni decided to retire him. He will officially be retired on 31st August, 2023.
