The Police Wednesday, 8th June, 2016, arrested Hon. Kabaziguruka Michael Andrew, the Member of Parliament, Nakawa Division, and another, who are under custody at the Special Investigations Division, Kireka.
“The circumstances under which they were arrested are very sensitive, and although we cannot divulge any further details at this stage,” said CP Fred Enanga, Press and Public Relations Officer.
According to Enanga, divulging the details will jeopardise investigations.
“We can only confirm to you that the suspects are helping us with investigations, into some very serious offences that involve other suspects as well.”
“We shall give a statement with more details at an appropriate time,” the police spokesperson said.
Guns, rebel activities
The Nakawa division legislator who trounced sacked Attorney General Fred Ruhindi in 2016 elections is accused of illegal gun possession.
His wife who has been blocked from seeing him at Kireka said police searched their home for guns before arresting her husband.
Kabaziguruka was arrested before on similar charges back in September 2012.
He was accused of forming a new rebel group known as Revolutionary Forces for the Liberation of Uganda (RFLU).
Together with Frederick Namara, John Kareebe, 50, the FDC chairman of Rugarama sub county, Rushenyi, Ntungamo and John Rutagororwa, 56, a primary school head teacher, Kabaziguruka was charged with treason at Nakawa court.
According to state, the group while in Kampala, Wakiso, Soroti, Kiboga, Ntungamo, Kenya and Congo plotted to overthrow the government through meetings, recruitment, mobilisation, acquisition of arms, uniforms, soliciting funds.
The group was, however, freed by High Court after the state failed to produce evidence.
