Military police Saturday raided the offices of former Prime Minister, Amama Mbabazi’s daughter, Nina Mbabazi, located in Kamwokya.
The offices were sealed off and turned inside out in a search operation.
Army spokesperson, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, referred to the incident as “a regular security check” of all security companies to check their compliance with the law.
Nina is the Managing Director of Supreme Security, Uganda Limited, a private Security Guard and Patrol Service provider.
According to URN, Nina conducted the registration of the members of the National Resistance Movement party in 2011.
Following the registration, she withheld the register awaiting payment of the dues to her.
The register has since become a source of conflict for the NRM with the party saying they did not authorize the exercise on which they based their primary election.
Also at the centre of the controversy is businessman Arvind Patel, the treasurer of NRM Entrepreneurs’ League, who is demanding for Shs 600m which he says he lent Nina Mbabazi to process the NRM register.
The money, he says, has since accumulated to Shs 5.4bn.
Patel argues that Mbabazi got the money from him with the approval of the Party chairman to computerise and update the NRM register.
Mbabazi under surveillance
Security personnel have hired two houses close to that of Mbabazi to monitor his every move.
A family source says apart from houses, they have deployed police to monitor and report.
However, Mbabazi has counter deployed private security guards at his residence.
Mbabazi’s silence has caused uncertainty within the ruling party and security apparatus.
Mbabazi has started driving himself and occasionally the police guards are rendered powerless.
The raid on the office used by Mbabazi’s children was a warning shot signaling what lies ahead.
There is also a report that the army expected to recover “illegal arms” from the office.
With fears of Amama facing an impending arrest, the former NRM Secretary General has upped his security system at his Kololo home with CCTV cameras.
Last year, Brig Leopold Kyanda commanded soldiers to raid Mbabazi’s home.
His military guards were arrested and military hardware taken.
The calm man still refuses to declare his presidential bid for 2016 which brought him to loggerheads with his boss, President Yoweri Museveni.
