Court has set May 30 as the date for the hearing of an application by Monitor Publications Limited to cancel a court order, compelling editors and reporters to produce the original letter that was written by Gen David Sejusa.

The letter, addressed to the Director General of Internal Security Organisation (ISO), Col Ronnie Balya, was advising the intelligence agency to investigate allegations that there was a plot to eliminate top government officials opposed to a so-called “Muhoozi Project”.

The project is allegedly planning to have Brig Muhoozi Kainerugaba installed as president after his father, Mr Museveni, retires.

The application will be heard by Justice Benjamin Kabiito.
