There is heavy Police deployment at Morulinga State Lodge in Napak district following the arrest of a suspected intruder on Thursday afternoon last week.
Christine Mwesigwa, a graduate of Makerere University and resident of Buluna-KikayaLC1 Zone “A” Ssumbwe parish in Wakiso district allegedly forced her way into the compound of Morulinga state lodge under unclear circumstances.
Upon her arrest, Mwesigwa reportedly told the UPDF soldiers guarding the facility that she was a daughter of Janet Museveni, the wife to President Yoweri Museveni.
But during cross examination she changed her statement saying she was looking for the Prime Ministers’ Office.
As a result, UPDF handed her to Napak Central Police Station for further management after she turned violent and adamant.
Captain Denis Omara, the 3rd Division UPDF spokesperson says they are yet to ascertain what prompted Mwesigwa to travel from Kampala to Morulinga State Lodge.
He says the manner in, which Mwesigwa entered the state lodge has also caused concern because of the ongoing terror threat in the country.
Omara appeals to the residents to report any strange persons in their respective areas.
Irene Aceng, the Karamoja Region Police spokesperson calls for calm saying security agencies have launched an investigation into the matter.
She says Mwesigwa will be transferred to Butabika to establish her mental status.
She says once investigations are complete Mwesigwa is likely to be charged with criminal trespass contrary to section 302 (1) of the penal code act.
Okot Obwona, the Mt. Moroto area Regional Police Commander says they will leave no stone unturned until they get to the bottom of the matter.
He wants investigations into the affair held to the depth so as to establish the motive of the intruder.
The suspect is currently at Moroto Regional Police Headquarters.
